Circuit Riding

ImageA few weeks after being ordained a priest I found myself preaching and leading four different services each weekend in Wheaton, Little VIllage (Chicago) and Berwyn. How did that happen? In Greenhouse we call this circuit riding, hearkening back to the good old days of the Methodist revival here in the US where circuit riders were one of the keys to the explosion of the church. Our goal is to similarly multiply congregations throughout the city of Chicago with a lay pastor or catechist at each congregation overseen by circuit riding clergy who visit multiple congregations a weekend. Currently my circuit is Saturday afternoons at Iglesia in Wheaton, Sunday mornings for two services at Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Villita, Chicago (where I am helping out  Fr. Jose Landaverde with his growing congregation), and Sunday evenings in Berwyn at our new church plant: San Marcos. Pray for my aging, but faithful, steed (Honda CRV) that is nearing 170,000 miles!
