The Rev. Donald Sackett

- For All the Saints
- From the Lion's Mouth

Father Don is a graduate of Nashotah House Theological Seminary, and is the Vicar of St. Mark's Anglican Church in Silvis, Illinois.

"I've felt called to the ministry since I was in my 20's, but I had no idea how God would make it possible. In 2003, God opened the door for me to enter the priesthood, and I became a postulant in the Anglican Church," he said. "In 2006, our family relocated to Wisconsin so I could attend seminary."

"I was ordained to the priesthood in 2009, and feel blessed to serve the church in that capacity," Fr. Sackett says. "The most exciting part of my calling is to see God working in people's lives. Jesus Christ is miraculous. He is a powerful, transforming force in the lives of those who believe in Him.

"I greatly enjoy the relationships I share with the people of the parish and with the community," he said. "I am blessed to be a part of their lives -- the hard times and the good times, to be able to pray with them, encourage them and to remind them that Christ is present with them always."

Mrs. Paulette Sackett

- Walking Out Our Faith

Paulette is a Minnesota farm girl who went off to college and then just kept going. She graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College with a bachelor's degree in Public Relations and then worked in healthcare communications in Nebraska, Maryland, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Illinois, and currently in Iowa.

Still a farm girl at heart, she enjoys the outdoors as much as possible, tries to bake as well as her mother, and even dabbles in canning and preserves. She also hopes to build a chicken coop in her backyard, wishes she could raise her own beef, and wonders what it would be like to keep bees for the glory of God.  Paulette is mother to four awesome children, wife to one passionate Anglican priest, and a grateful servant of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Just like a good Minnesota hotdish, she mixes it all together into one very blessed life.

 Mr. Eric Palm

Erik is the voice behind From the Pages of Antiquity, where he hopes to refine his skills as a lector, and to use the voice that God has given him. The son of a protestant minister who was known to preach for an hour or more on many a Sunday, the sermon has been a part of Erik's life since he was a child. An acolyte at St. Mark's in Silvis, you can find Erik serving as many masses as he can fit into his work schedule at a Hotel & Casino in Rock Island. If you see someone in Geneseo with a cigar in his left hand, and a coke in his right, its bound to be Erik Palm!
