Deacon Carl Mark Varga entered eternal happiness Feb. 12, 2021. Carl joined his wife of 49 years, Elizabeth Marie (nee Thamer) Varga, who preceded him in 2011. Deacon Carl was a true servant. Following his ordination to Permanent Deaconate in 1980, he served the parishes of Saint Mary of the Assumption in Mentor, Divine Word in Kirtland, and St. Phillip Neri in Cleveland. He found true joy and purpose in his ministry, and was passionate about supporting families. He and Liz devoted many years to Divine Word’s Pre-Cana program and fostered several newborns through Catholic Family Services. He was especially proud of his work with St. Joseph’s House, Christ Child Society, Holy Name Society, and Welcome Home for Inactive Catholics.
