She dipped her toe in the waters of pastoral care by taking Spiritual Care Visitor Training, and then went even deeper by taking a unit of our Community Based Clinical Education. Now Deacon Rose Cicero is diving in to her call to serve by joining our Bishop Anderson House staff as part-time chaplain.
Rose’s primary duties at Stroger Hospital will be serving women and children, and being a representative of Dianna’s Teddy Bear Ministry. She says “I feel a strong call to serve at Stroger Hospital and am looking forward to joining the Bishop Anderson House staff in providing spiritual and emotional care to patients. I have a deep desire to bring support, healing and comfort to those most in need.”
Recently ordained as Deacon in the Episcopal Church, Rose will also be serving at Holy Nativity Episcopal Church in Clarendon Hills. She joins us after a long career as an educator at Morton West High School, and has been a Court Appointed Special Advocate for CASA of Cook County for over 20 years. Welcome, Rose, we are excited for the good work you will do on behalf of Bishop Anderson House.
