The People at Calvary




The Rev. Maureen O'Connor

The Reverend Maureen O'Connor grew up in the Chicago area and attended seminary locally at Northern Seminary and Bexley-Seabury.  Maureen started an intentionally multicultural church plant, Bethel Bible Church, with a professor from Elmhurst College and remained with them for 5 years before solely devoting her time to the Episcopal Church. Maureen has also co-founded a 501(c)(3) non-profit called, Connecting With Love (CWL) that provides fundraising support to local charities and at-risk-children in Guinea, West Africa through the Anglican Diocese.  You can read more about Maureen's story in her interview with the Lombardian.  

The last few years Maureen has served at St. James Episcopal Cathedral in Chicago, and St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Glen Ellyn. Maureen has a passion to empower people to love like Christ, and feels called to build bridges between those outside the church walls and those within. Email Maureen.
