Welcome to our newest Regional Representative Mari Harding! Mari and her beloved husband, Stephen Harding, are both members of Pohick Episcopal Church in Lorton, Virginia (also known as Mason Neck*, Virginia) where their paths first crossed and where they married many years later.
Mari and Steve both completed the Education For Ministry course in May of 2008 and they now serve together as Lay Eucharistic Ministers at Pohick. Mari enjoys working with the Flower Guild, and supporting spiritually the church’s clergy and various ministries through participation in the Kiki Coderre Prayer Group.
Pohick has an interesting history. Founded and funded by George Washington, George Fairfax, and George Mason*, it was the first church in Virginia to establish a Community of Hope center, which has now grown to include 22 members.
At the invitation of Jennifer Sassin, Mari completed the COHI training in 2014. She has since become a member of the COC Facilitator team, and has recently taken on the role of Regional Representative for the Atlantic Region.
In the secular world, Mari works as the Direct Import Manager for Empson USA, Inc., a predominantly Italian wine import concern. In this capacity she oversees the logistics of container shipments from Italy, Chile and New Zealand.
Mari and Steve have been married for 13 years and have four adult children living in New York, Maryland, and California.
