Sarnecki, Deacon Steve




Deacon Steve Sarnecki raised a family of seven (now, nearly grown!) children, after graduating college and marrying his high school sweetheart. For years, he coached multiple soccer and baseball teams, attended Mass regularly and served in his Parish and community, while also working as VP for a large software company. What he thought was just surviving was actually building his skills and charism for love and service. Deacon Steve’s life journey came together in May 2019, when he was ordained a Deacon for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, and his current Diaconal assignment is to St. Lawrence Martyr in Hanover.He is a degreed Chemical Engineer, with an MBA and a Masters in Management, as well as, a Masters in Theology, and he founded SALT (Mt 5:13) Ministries – a grassroots outreach to the hungry, homeless and lonely. Deacon Steve also serves on the Board of Trustees for the Franciscan Center of Baltimore. Working with the needy, so closely parallels my passion and “REAL work” as a father. Each always teaching me to “See Jesus in everyone we meet, and to BE Jesus anyone in need” … especially with our families!
