A blessing to everyone, My Name is Carlos Roman I am excited of the opportunity to join St. Alphonsus’ religious education and formation program. I am a proud Mexican-American (Latino), well rooted in my cultural traditions, share a close relationship with both mother and father, two sisters, two nephews and a beautiful dog (Cuco). I enjoy music, reading, traveling and making new friends; please, do not shy away, and stop by the office and say hello!
I grew-up in the West Town community (presently known as East Village/Wicker Park), I studied at North Park University both BA in Management and Leadership and MA in Organizational Development. Later on completed a Masters in Education from DePaul University in Curriculum Instruction and Education Leadership and presently completing a Masters of Divinity at Catholic theological Union (CTU). Previous employment includes teaching, management, and social work in corporate and not-for-profit corporations. Working with different multicultural communities in Chicago and cities across the country has granted me an understanding and sensitivity to people who share different worldviews.
I pray to be instrumental in sharing and walking a spiritual journey with the members of Saint Alphonsus faith community. And just the like The Servant Song, “Will you let me be your servant, Let me be as Christ to you. Pray that I might have the grace. To let me be your servant too. We are pilgrims on the journey. We are brothers on the road. We are here to help each other. Walk the mile and bear the load. I will weep when you are weeping. When you laugh, I’ll laugh with you. I will share your joy and sorrow. Till we’ve seen this journey through.”
Please keep me in your prayers, as I will pray for each and every one.
