Mary Wilkerson has worked within the Archdiocese of
Detroit for eleven years, ministering to youth and young
adults. Mary’s passions include social media, pastorally
responding to the question of homosexuality, young women’s
ministry and awakening a love for Scripture. Mary’s
greatest accomplishment however is her family: based in
Redford Township, she is a wife to Aaron and a mother to
her three boys, a baby girl, and one child on the way.
