Deacon Chris Rauch

What I Do:

I am a Deacon formally appointed by the Archbishop to the Northeast-4 Family of Parishes (Church of the Incarnation and St. Francis of Assisi Church). I am also employed as the Business Manager at St. Francis of Assisi Church.

About me:

I grew up in the Belmont area of Dayton, the youngest of seven children (10 years between me and my next sibling). I graduated from Carroll High School in 1979 and then enlisted in the Air Force. After 4 years in the Air Force I attended Wright State University, and shortly thereafter accepted a position in the Engineering Department at DESC. I left the Government world in the mid 90’s and have worked as a business manager since. My wife Joanie and I were married in 1984 and are blessed to have four children (1 girl and 3 boys) and 12 grandchildren (6 girls and 6 boys).

Favorite Saint:

I am drawn to St. Joseph and have actually preached as him a few times.

Favorite Bible Quote:

My “favorite” changes throughout the year. At this time check out Luke 10: 1-12, as I believe it speaks to each of us…
