On Saturday, December 9, our annual celebration of A Festival of Lessons and Carols will also celebrate our
history and our new beginning.

to our Sanctuary and Parish Hall.

The St. John’s Choir, the St. John’s Children’s Choir, and the worship team are preparing beautiful worship and
The Rt. Rev. Bishop Jeffery Lee will be present to bless our donors, our fundraising team, our planning team, our construction team and all those who will use the lift.

The worship is at 5:00 p.m.

A festive dinner follows in the Parish Hall at 6:00 p.m.

Childcare provided. Shhh! St. Nicholas may pay a visit!

All Souls

Every week the names of all those murdered in Chicago are remembered in our prayers. Every year we remember all the victims of homicide in the city of Chicago. This is the sobering list.
