My name is Mario Mirelez and I am honored to be nominated to serve on the Vestry. A Hoosier native and Indianapolis resident since 1989, I have attended CCC since 2018. As part of my Christian formation at CCC, I have completed Catechumenate, am enrolled in my first year of EfM (Education for Ministry), and serve as a Chalice Bearer for 8AM services.
It has been said that leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by everyone in our church. I intend to be a leader at Christ Church Cathedral in whatever way possible, large or small. The Cathedral will continue to exemplify God’s love for every human being and further our legacy of inclusion, but this important work must be done thoughtfully and with great responsibility. When clergy and congregation work in concert, we can accomplish a great deal.
My professional experience includes Graphic Design Creative Director, Marketing and Branding Management, and for the past 10 years, Green Industry Retail Manager. I currently work as a Buyer and Product Developer for a Wholesale Grower specializing in ornamental annuals and houseplants.
