Office: 512.353.1979

Fr Christian began his term as the 40th Rector of St Mark’s starting in July of 2022. Prior to this call, he served churches in Knoxville, TN and Austin, TX. He is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Vanderbilt University, and the Seminary of the Southwest. His former careers as a military officer, bartender, wilderness survival instructor, children’s book salesman, night librarian, and trail running guide all spice up his priesthood. He’s married to the Reverend Madeline Shelton Hawley and they cohabitate with two kids, Valerie and Frank, two cats, Jean Lafitte and Minerva Pearl, and one dog, MacGyver. They love the outdoors, sports, arts, and crafts.
