Gretchen Schlabach

I am a life-time Episcopalian. My Episcopal journey began in Morristown, NJ with a few stops here and there, before arriving in DeKalb, IL (1991), where I became very active in church life. I was an acolyte/chalicer, participated in adult formation and streaming ministries, welcomed students back to school, and served on the vestry a handful of times (including warden). Serving with other faithful people was an incredibly enlightening and rewarding experience.

Lorraine, my partner of 20 years, our two cats (Baroque and Passagio), and I are transitioning into Chicago full-time. Long walks downtown, along the river, and up the lake is what we enjoy. We love the beat of this beautiful urban center. But equally important, we love All Saints, Ravenswood, a community of generous, loving, faithful and caring city folk.
