Welcome Fr. Mark Brauer!

On July 1, 2021, Fr. Mark Brauer became the new pastor of St. Hugo of the Hills Catholic Parish and School.  He was ordained to the priesthood on June 27, 1992, at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral by Cardinal Maida.  He was born in Detroit Michigan and is one of eight children born to Corinne and Joseph Brauer.  He is their sixth child, five boys and three girls.

This assignment is Fr. Brauer’s fourth since ordination more than twenty-nine years ago.  Fr. Mark was the pastor of Our Lady of Sorrow for the past sixteen years.  Prior to this assignment, he was Pastor of one of the first clusters in the archdiocese, St. Christine Parish and St. Gemma Parish, both located on the west side of Detroit.  He served the two parishes for ten years.  Fr. Mark’s first assignment was as an Associate Pastor of St. Ephrem Parish in Sterling Heights. We look forward to  having Fr. Mark be part of St. Hugo community.
