RENEW MY CHURCH DECISION
On Wednesday, January 26, 2022, our Episcopal Vicar, Bishop Andrew Wypych, announced the decision of Cardinal Cupich to create a new parish of St. Terrence and Incarnation, Crestwood. This decision came after a process of discernment and feedback that our parishioners participated in the last months. Fr. Arek Falana, current Pastor of Incarnation is named the Pastor of the newly united Parish of St. Terrence and Incarnation effective July 1st, 2022. I am confident that our Lord will accompany us during this transitional time with the support of all of you.

MEET MARTHA CAVALIERI
My name is Martha Cavalieri, and I live in Home-
wood with my husband of 20 years and our four children. It has been an honor to join the staff at St Terrence as the Co- ordinator of Children’s Faith Formation. Last year we were able to steer the program in a
whole new direction, involving parents and children together, with a renewed sense of purpose. Although I am a new addition to the St Terrence staff, I have witnessed the incredible community of volunteers and parishioners who step up time and time again to give witness to the Gospel and serve Christ and His Church. It is with this hope and spirit of renewal that I join the Renew My Church committee here at St Terrence. To God be the Glory!
