Nine Performers with Disabilities Take to the Stage to Navigate the Road to Connection Through Story,

On Sunday, July 30 Tellin’ Tales Theatre and Bodies of Work  will present Divercity, a series of solo performances – some funny,  some serious, all engaging – by people with disabilities.

There will be a reception at 12 noon with food and refreshments, performances at 1:00pm and a talk back with the actors at 2:15. Tickets are $10 for adults $7 for students, seniors, and people with disabilities. Order tickets on line at BROWN PAPER TICKETS or contact Theresa Pacione at 773 946-7540.

St. Martin’s is wheelchair accessible. The performances will be sign language interpreted and audio described. Free parking is available in an open lot at the northeast corner of Race and Waller located across from the church. This program is made possible through a generous grant from the Chicago Community Trust.

Let’s Show Our Love for Fr. Christopher Griffin


Recently, as many of you know, Fr. Griffin was diagnosed with kidney cancer. St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Evanston, where Fr. Chris served as an Associate has set up a gofundme campaign to help Fr. Griffin with the many expenses he will incur to as a result of his treatment.

St. Matthew’s has agreed to let us join our efforts with theirs and contribute funds through the page they have set up.


Here is the link to Chris’s Cancer Ride. Let’s continue to send Fr. Griffin our love, our prayers and financial support as we are able.
