Mark Rivera Trial Update

Beloved in the Lord, 

I want to update you on Mark Rivera’s trial that took place today at Kane County Judicial Center. This afternoon the state rested its case; the defense did not present. Due to scheduling challenges, the trial will not resume until September 2, 1:30pm.

We continue to ask for your prayers for:

  • the court to make wise decisions and execute right actions

  • justice to be carried out swiftly

  • true repentance and amendment of life

  • physical, spiritual, emotional healing for all survivors and their loved ones

  • all involved to embrace the Lord’s redemptive power and love

As we wait, we look to the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth, to bring about healing and justice.

Yours faithfully in Christ Jesus, 


The Rt. Rev. John E. Miller, III
Acting Bishop
Diocese of the Upper Midwest
