Alderwoman Luisa DeLauro
Last Saturday there was a big event for Wooster Square's former beloved Alderwoman Luisa DeLauro. Rosa today is 97 years old and served the neighborhood for 35 years where she still lives today. The corner of Chapel and Academy Streets was named 'Alderwoman Luisa DeLauro Corner' in her honor. It brought the neighborhood out and many of the political figures from the area including Luisa's daughter Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro,Third District.
After serving congregations in Fairfield, Bridgeport, and Wilton, CT I am the Senior Redevelopment Pastor at Orange Congregational Church in Orange, CT. Prior to that I lived in Jerusalem (the real one) and I have three GORGEOUS children, the loves of my life.
