CRYSTAL LAKE – Lou Ness, who completed her journey on foot from Rockford to Washington D.C. last month, will speak at The First Congregational Church of Crystal Lake.
Ness, a Woodstock resident and ordained deacon in the Episcopal Church, will discuss her trip at the Spirit Worship at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, July 19 at the church, 461 Pierson St., Crystal Lake.
Her goal was to shed light on the needs of the poor and change the way the country discusses the impoverished. She took her experiences to the Capitol and met with legislators upon arrival in Washington D.C.
Ness, a former director at Turning Point of McHenry County in Woodstock, is currently the executive director at Shelter Care Ministries in Rockford.
