St. Sabina is, I believe, more than a congregation, but a teaching ground where countless people from around the world pass through our doors and take something with them. It is a ground where denominational walls have been dismantled and racial barriers removed. It is a ground where the Spirit of the Lord has brought freedom and where young and old, wealthy and poor have been welcomed.
The Rev. Dr. Michael Louis Pfleger
Senior Pastor, The Faith Community of Saint Sabina

Dr. Michael Louis Pfleger received his B.A. in Theology from Loyola University, his Master of Divinity from the University of St. Mary of the Lake and an honorary Doctor of Divinity from North Park Theological Seminary.
