Rick Beato


Rick and his lovely wife Marilyn have been members here for nine years.  He was raised Catholic but have been Lutheran for 30 years now, formerly a member at Trinity in Roselle (Missouri Synod).  They joined Bethlehem in the Advent season of 2007, six months after he retired from a 38-year career as English teacher and athletic coach at Lisle Senior High School.  It had been a long search for the right Church home for them, but the result makes it all worthwhile. Rick is involved with assisting at Communion and he schedules drivers for Salvation Army Golden Diners.   You may have seen him around with a camera collecting photos of various Bethlehem events.
