Rev. A. Wayne Riggs pastored Plymouth Congregational Church (NACCC) for over 20 years. Pastor Riggs served as chairman to the North Park Christian Service Agency next door to St. Luke's Episcopal Church on 30th Street in North Park. Wayne also thought Paesano's was the best Italian place around and a good place to convene the North Park Clergy Assn. meetings. Wayne believed in the Father, Son & Holy Ghost and he sure could preach the message. We miss you Wayne.
Pastor Wayne Riggs, may he rest in peace.
Pastor Wayne Riggs, a long-time, highly respected, and beloved member of the governing board of the Interfaith Center for Worker Justice, passed away early Saturday morning, December 16, after a sudden and fierce battle with cancer.
Pastor Riggs is also remembered for his long career serving as a chaplain in the Navy. Reflecting on his own chaplaincy service, Pastor Riggs often told stories that occurred during his long association with Cardinal John O’Connor, when the Cardinal was a rear admiral and the Auxiliary Bishop of the Military Vicariate for the United States.
