ALL Churches will be closed indefinitely. Services are available via livestream only. 

Click here to read the letter from the Metropolis.  
Spread the word to those who are not connected via email to make sure that they receive the message.  For those who have already scheduled memorials, or baptisms, and chrismations, Fr. Peter will be reaching out to you to discuss the plan moving forward.


Greeting before the Sermon: Father will say “Christ is in our Midst.” The response from the parish is “He Was, Is, and Always Shall Be.”

Father Peter has brought to us the Holy Light from the Tomb of Christ in Jerusalem that is miraculously lit every Easter Service at the tomb of Christ. The light was brought to America and given to Father. You can read more about the “Holy Fire” online.

We congratulate our new Philoptochos Board Members.

Saturday, May 23rd -- Metropolis of Chicago Cross Town 5K Walk/Run  All funds raised from the event will be deposited in the Metropolis’ COVID-19 Parish Relief Fund to assist those parishes in our Metropolis most severely impacted by the pandemic. Because all funds will be used to benefit our parishes, we hope that you will help make this event a success. We would like to have broad participation in the Cross Town 5K Walk/Run by all parishes in the Metropolis. Please see the attached letter from His Eminence and encourage all individuals and families to support our parishes by participating and obtaining sponsors.
The registration fee covers the cost of a Cross Town 5K Walk/Run t-shirt. While registration will remain open until May 23rd, to guarantee delivery of a t-shirt, participants must register by May 10th.
Participants will be able to choose the time and place to walk or run, and will raise funds by procuring individual or corporate sponsorships. Both individual and corporate sponsorships are needed to raise the level of funds needed to help our parishes weather the Coronavirus crisis and carry out their operations and ministries at this critical time.
If you have additional questions about the Cross Town 5K Walk/Run, please contact the Cross Town 5K Walk/Run chairs, Pam Argyris and Lori Chiampas
