Angel Lorenz

Musical Director & Hospitality Support

Angel began his music journey as a Junior in high school. But it was not until his Senior year, when he was exposed to Jazz, that he discovered music was his calling. He was accepted soon after into the Ravinia Jazz Mentor Program, where he played the Saxophone and learned from Chicago’s best – such as Willie Pickens, Pat Mallinger, Tito Carrillo and Bobby Broom. All the support, encouragement and teachings from these mentors proved to be a pivotal point in the life of this kid raised in the South Side of Chicago, originally from Celaya, Guanajuato.  Dharmastation.com

Rev. Minnie Robinson

Officiant

Minnie is the mother of six beautiful daughters and all are over the age of 21...Thank God! She says one of the best decisions she has made over the years was to become an ordained minister. She loves people and finds they love her in return.

​“Rev. Minnie” as she is lovingly called, has an extensive background in customer service, as she retired from AT&T. She shares with others, becoming a minister is an extension of ‘customer service,’ on a spiritual level.

Minnie returned to school as a mature youngster (55+) and received her Bachelor and Master degrees from Dominican University in River Forest, IL.

Minnie was a long time resident of Oak Park for over 20 plus years residency there and she moved on to Elmwood Park,.She loves the diversity and excellent restaurants in Elmwood park as she did in Oak Park.

Minnie’s passion is to continue on with her education and to receive her Doctorate in Divinity, She says she will always be a professional learner, to be of service and to serve, as it is her charge as a minister to: “God out and teach the nations and be about her “Father’s Business.” Minnie’s mantra for herself and All is to: “Live Well, Laugh Often and Love Much!”

​Rev Minnie is available for weddings and life celebrations/memorials.
