(Editor’s Note: Following is the next installment of the Herald’s monthly series profiling a priest or deacon who is serving in our diocese. This issue, we feature Deacon Mark Griffith, who currently serves at St. Mary’s Cathedral.)

Deacon Mark Griffith hails from Brooklyn, New York, where he went to a Catholic elementary school.

He went to a public high school because he told his parents that he did not want to wear a uniform ever again. That lasted about six years until he started in the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) and had to wear a uniform again.


Father Gregory Bierbaum grew up in Beresford, South Dakota, where his parents owned and operated a ReXall Drug Store for decades. He has three younger brothers. As an adult, he worked in businesses in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Overland Park, Kansas. His father died in 2017 and his mother now lives in Olathe, Kansas.
