Rev. Warren J. McCarty - Pastor Emeritus

Fr. Warren is St. Marcelline's pastor emeritus, an honorary title recognizing his significant contributions to our parish immediately preceeding his retirement. Fr. Warren was pastor of St. Marcelline from 1976 to 1997. During his tenure, Fr. Warren truly built the church we know and love today. He brought to life the Family Life Center and Samaritan Window Shrine, built an addion to the rectory and renovated the Church and Gathering Place. Fr. Warren is now enjoying the glory of retirement, but looks back fondly on his time at St. Marcelline. "I would have chosen it over every other endeavor," he said. "Where else could you get a chance to spend so much time with God's word and God's people!"
