A man who made final profession of vows with the Congregation of Holy Cross this summer is serving as a transitional deacon at the University of Portland. Another new Holy Cross priest-to-be took vows after serving in Oregon.

Rev. Mr. Mark DeMott and Rev. Mr. Jarrod Waugh took vows of chastity, poverty and obedience for life in the basilica at the University of Notre Dame.

Rev. Mr. DeMott’s first placement as a deacon is serving as director of a University of Portland residence hall. As a seminarian, he served and studied in Indiana, Mexico, Colorado and Uganda, where he was choir director and a chemistry and biology teacher.

The eldest of five children, he grew up in Holland, Mich. He received a bachelor’s degree in 2002 from Notre Dame, where he also received a Master of Divinity in 2007.

Rev. Mr. DeMott first thought of religious life at 16 when a Holy Cross missionary discussed his work in East Africa. He pondered, studied for a medical career and imagined he'd get married. But God's invitation became clearer and clearer.  

Rev. Mr. Waugh grew up in rural Southeast Kansas. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame in 2008 and a Master of Divinity in 2012. He was active in campus ministry and the campus Knights of Columbus Council.

During his Holy Cross formation, he served at St. André Bessette Church in Old Town and Holy Redeemer Parish and School in North Portland. He is now the deacon at Christ the King Parish in South Bend, Ind.

Rev. Mr. Waugh began discerning his call to the priesthood after meeting Holy Cross Religious as an undergraduate at Notre Dame in 2004. “I think discerning your vocation is less about reaching a point of certainty than it is about falling in love,” he said. “For me, it was the gradual realization that my best gifts – those I always knew about and those I have discovered or had shown to me along the way – as well as my greatest weaknesses are most likely to be handled in productive ways as a brother in a community of prayer, good humor and fraternal concern."

The United States Province of Priests and Brothers, which includes the University of Portland, is made up of almost 500 priests, brothers, and seminarians and is headquartered in Notre Dame, Ind.
