Fall 2022 Worship Series: Searching for the Sacred
The way we see the world, relate to the world, live in the world and with each other has theological roots. In other words, what we believe about the holy, what we think is “sacred” or not, determines how we treat each other and creation.

Gather on Saturday, September 10, 2022
to Celebrate the Life and Ministry of
Rev. Philip Desenis
November 28, 1928 – June 24, 2022
“Rev.” lived an extraordinary life. Determined to make a difference in the wider community, he followed his call to ministry and served as an Associate Pastor at his first parish in Chicago, at St. Paul’s UCC where he found and married the love of his life, the Senior Pastor’s daughter, Joanne Grauer. His passion for serving the youth of the city led him to be highly involved with the youth gangs of the day, and with ministries of outreach and service.
He answered a call to pastor a newly merging church in Deerfield, IL and in1959 was the founding pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ – then only a vision in a forest that would later become 760 North Ave. With his creativity and dynamic personality, the church was thriving and with his expansive leadership, became a vital hub of the community.
Rev. served the church for 31 years, retiring in June 1990. He and Joanne raised three daughters there, welcomed grandchildren, extended family and hosts of members, friends and community leaders.
Join us on Saturday, September 10th at 2:00 P.M. to Give Thanks.
