Pastors of the Silver Run Parish

Rev. Paul A. Haack




1987 Church Directory



The Rev. Paul A. Haack was the pastor of St. Mary's from 1986 thru 1989. During Pastor Haack's tenure, St. Mary's celebrated it's 225 year anniversary. Former pastors and some of the former congregation returned to make the celebration. A part of the celebration called for Pastor Haack to dress in period costume and drive up for worship in a horse-drawn carriage.

During this time Pastor Fred Weiser from New Oxford, Pennsylvania organized and translated the old German records of the church.

Pastor Haack also increased liturgical awareness of the congregation and participation.

Pastor Haack and wife Janet have been married since 1968 and have two sons, Jeremy and Aaron.
