Mark Hammond » Faculty and Staff

Our dedicated, hard-working team of faculty and staff makes St. Vincent de Paul School and Preschool what it is today. The faculty has over 200 years of combined teaching experience. Seventy-five percent of our graduates continue to play high school sports and eight out of ten of our graduates attend college. We have been honored as a “Buckeye Best School” award and grant recipient since 2003, we are listed in the Global Directory of Who’s Who, and we are accredited by the state of Ohio through the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association.

A native of Newark, Mark Hammond is Father of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church and Pastor over the Knox-Licking Consortium of Catholic Churches. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1989. Fr. Hammond came to Mount Vernon in July of 2006, and hopes to stay a very long time!  He has graduate degrees in both canon law and moral theology, and he is also an R.N.  His hobbies include music, golf, and of course, taking care of his dog, Morty.
