About the Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church is a gathering of all kinds of people who put their trust in Jesus of Nazareth as Lord and Savior, who believe that God loves all people, and who want to share God’s love, peace, and forgiveness with everyone we encounter. We want to follow Jesus and his teachings in our daily lives


This is an open invitation to all men to our annual bowling night at Brunswick Lanes in Niles. The cost per person is $30, which includes food and soft drinks. Please contact Joe O'Grady at (847) 477-7997 by Friday, April 20 if you want to bowl.

Men's Breakfast Group | Saturday, May 5

The men of St. Mary's meet for breakfast in The Marshall Dining Room on the first Saturday of each month from September thru May for fellowship and to plan activities that give back to the community-at-large. The group  has been volunteering in Chicago's Night Ministry Program where meals are prepared at St. Mary's and served to residents in the South Shore, Pilsen, and Lawndale neighborhoods in Chicago. The group enjoys attending Chicago Cubs and Northwestern football games, as well as bowling outings.

Youth Sunday | May 6

Saint Mary's invites you to Youth Sunday on May 6th. A day when our Youth will lead us in worship. To celebrate our children and youth we will also have a celebration after the service with BBQ and a bouncy house. Join us as we celebrate our children and youth, and thank our volunteer teachers and assistants.


As part of No Strangers at Home, we have installed a SPOTLIGHT board on the wall between the bell tower doors and the Grauer Lounge. We will be spotlighting different parishioners every few weeks so that we can all put names with faces. There will also be a little bio of each - the facts of which may or may not be the subject of a trivia game in the future! Be sure to stop and see our current SPOTLIGHT honorees: The Kreger Family. And get ready for your time in the SPOTLIGHT !
