Leah Romanelli shares her experiences at Standing Rock at Standing Rock. On November 6th, Leah and John White, our Office Manager, met up with our friend from the Rosebud Reservation, Steve Tamayo. Together, they traveled to Cannonball, ND with the love and support of Christ Church to bring winter clothing, food, and supplies to the Native children at Standing Rock. Grab a cup of coffee and take a seat to learn more.

Click here for Erwin Mayer’s presentation
Our surveys over the last 12 months have continued to indicate a desire for increased service in Christ’s Name in the Chicago Community and among ourselves.  As a result, I have asked Erwin Mayer, our parishioner and the new Executive Director of St. Leonard’s Ministries, to be our kick-off speaker for this fall.  Erwin’s story of faith includes personal mistakes that led to imprisonment for white collar crime and his journey back from that experience.  Erwin’s honest engagement of his past and the story of how Christ Church, his family, and his faith have buoyed him is compelling from many angles.   He is now serving a population of people who are transitioning from incarceration back into the community. His service to these men and women is part of his own healing and acceptance of God’s mercy. His ability to speak plainly and directly about how Jesus has led him through his dark times is an inspiration and a model for all of us.  Plan to join us and have your faith deepened.
