Rev. Mark McKone-Sweet

Rev. Mark McKone-Sweet


Mark was born and raised in Concord, MA, the son of a fine woodworker and preschool teacher. He discovered the joy of serving others in Boston soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and local prisons. Mark graduated from Wheaton College in Norton, MA, with a focus in International Relations and Music. While working at Equal Exchange, Inc., Mark earned his MBA at Northeastern University. Although Mark first identified his call to the priesthood at age 14, it would not be until his early 30’s that he started full-time at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, MA. His innate learning disabilities, dyslexia, and ADHD have informed his life and ministry.
