Tom Chockley, Board Member of DuPage UU Church for three Years During my Ministry

“At DuPage UU Reverend Capo was instrumental in revitalizing a moribund social justice committee. He worked with church members to select a church-wide focus on racism and criminal justice. Likewise, he worked in concert with religious leaders and government officials advocating religious tolerance and civic engagement.”


Thomas Baldwin, Chair of the Committee on Ministries at DuPage UU Church

“Reverend Tom is deeply committed to the areas of pastoral care, his and others spiritual growth, and social justice…Reverend Capo has demonstrated to me the capacity to generously receive and positively act upon assessments of his ministry. I believe his self-understanding combined with a genuine love of his ministry, his congregation and its people are qualities to be not only admired, but vigorously sought in a minister”


Cheryl Clayton, Chair of the Social Justice Committee at DuPage UU Church

Reverend Tom has been a driving force behind the members of this group who wish to realize positive social change; we shall forever be inspired and grateful that he has chosen to walk this path with us…Reverend Tom has also taught us how and why “We must do the things we think we cannot do.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)
