Liaison for Disaster Relief

Chris Sadlocha

Chris was born and raised in Syracuse for 20 years as a Roman Catholic. His 40 year affiliation here at Christ Church started as one of convenience, having been married at Christ Church. Good thing, Chris thinks, because there are lots of nice people at Christ Church.

He is married to his current wife of 42 years, Sallye (Stebbins), and has 2 sons, Daniel, in Gilbertsville and Joseph with Daughter-in-law, Diane, in San Jose, California.

In June 2015, he retired from 40 years of teaching; 2 years in Australia, 1 year on the sub circuit and 37  in Laurens Central School at Second Grade.

Chris has been affiliated with the Boy Scouts for about 20 years and practices its Law daily.


He volunteers his time and talents to Sing a Song of Broadway, a local theater group and The American Red Cross.

Chris served on the Vestry for 15 years and continues to serve the parish as its Liaison for Relief and is 'on call' for the Buildings and Grounds committee.

Chris especially applies the preaching of Jesus in the red letter bibles, where the red letters are the words of Jesus, regarding tolerance and acceptance of all.
