Save the Shrine’s co-founder, Gabriel Piemonte, has recently been elected to the board of the Northern Illinois Historic League and to serve as president of the board of the Shrine’s next-door neighbor the St. Martin de Porres House of Hope. We are delighted to see these relationships with our partner organizations develop and we congratulate Gabriel on these very well-deserved positions: they are lucky to have him! You can read more about Gabriel’s work with the House of Hope here: http://www.smdp-hoh.org/meet-new-board-president/ .
Gabriel has also recently announced his candidacy for Alderman of the Shrine’s neighboring 5th Ward. Save the Shrine cannot say anything political, but we wish Gabriel the best in all his endeavors.
