Marilyn Behrens


Marilyn was ordained as a vocational deacon in 1997 and served at the California Diocese of El Camino Real. After retiring from her day job in 2009, she moved to Gig Harbor to be near her children and grandchildren. She began attending St. John’s. One fateful Sunday, she was invited by the newish rector to serve as a deacon at St. John’s. While maintaining her mostly retired status, Marilyn serves with the ESL ministry, is a shift leader at the GHP FISH Food Bank, helps out with pastoral care, and serves as the liturgical deacon at the 10 AM Eucharist on Sundays.
