Meet Pastor Mary

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, it is my pleasure to be appointed as your new pastor.  I look forward to being in ministry with you as together we strive to know, love and serve God as Wesley United Methodist Church in the Oshkosh community.

At this writing I have been your pastor for less than one week and I have met many of you.  My challenge will be to remember who everyone is, i.e. putting the names and the faces together.  I hope you will be patient with me as I go through that learning process.  I am also learning how you worship and work together, as well as how you relate to one another.  Please be patient with my many questions as I seek to put the many pieces of the Wesley puzzle together.

For your information, I have been involved in ministry for nearly 30 years. The past seven years I have served as a Licensed Local Pastor at the River Valley Charge of Pepin, Alma and Arkansaw, the Randolph-Courtland Charge and at Sheboygan-Wesley.   As a lay person I served at my home church Covenant United Methodist Church in Fond du Lac where I had a variety of experiences and leadership roles. 

I was physical education teacher for 33 years and a pioneer in the development of the girl’s athletic programs in the three school districts I served.  I taught in the Little Wolf School District (Manawa), the Kiel School District and the Campbellsport School District and coached volleyball, basketball and track and field.

I received my B.S. degree from UW-Oshkosh and my M.A. in Physical Education from the University of Iowa.  I just recently completed my Course of Study work as a Licensed Local Pastor.

I am a widow; my husband Owen passed away 10 years ago.  I have a step-son, daughter-in- law, two adult grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, and I am the oldest of six children.

I live on a small farm South of Fond du Lac.  I love country living...but the city is getting closer and closer to my location.

I look forward to ministering with you and ask God’s blessings on our time together.

Pastor Mary
