Rev. 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 Doctorate of Divinity from North Park Theological Seminary. Father Pfleger was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago on May 14, 1975 at the age of 31, becoming the youngest full pastor in the diocese when he was appointed Pastor of Saint Sabina Church. Since 1968, Father Pfleger has lived and ministered in the African-American community on both the west and south sides of Chicago. Father Pfleger has been involved in many issues, such as campaigns against the sale of drug paraphernalia, billboards that target children with alcohol and tobacco advertising, negative music that glorifies violence and degrades women, the violence and disrespect of women, and the easy access to guns and the violence that is snatching the lives of children across the country. As a minister, Father Pfleger has sought to break down the walls of racism and denominationalism by building unity among all people founded on truth and based on Jesus’ command to love one another. However, he believes his most important role is an errand boy for Jesus!
