Marc Laudonio is the Director of Evangelization and Catechesis at the Cathedral Parish.  He oversees the development of a network of discipleship small groups as well as Marriage Preparation, Baptism Preparation for parents, other adult faith formation opportunities, marriage enrichment opportunities, and young adult (20s&30s) activities.

After growing up Lutheran he became an Evangelical Protestant in high school and during his later college years began to wrestle with theological, historical, and spiritual questions that eventually led him to embrace the fullness of the Christian faith in the Catholic Church.  He currently lives in Cottage Grove with his wife, Julie, who is a special education teacher, and their three children, Dominic (9), Avila (7), and Rosalie (4).  Marc earned his Masters of Pastoral Theology degree through the Augustine Institute, a Catholic graduate school based in Denver, CO.
