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


St. Cyprian’s food pantry helps feed 400-500 households on the northwest side of Chicago each month. St. Mary’s has long been a supporter of St. Cyprian’s and we will be collecting food for the pantry on February 18 and February 25.

All kinds of food are welcome but special needs are SOUPS, BREAKFAST CEREALS, CANS OF FRUIT, WHITE RICE, COOKING OIL AND PASTA. Boxes will be by the fireplace in the GRAUER LOUNGE for collection.

St. Cyprian’s is also in great need of volunteers. If you would like more information, contact Leona Thomas at 847-983-8183.

Wednesdays In Lent | Discovering God in the Bible: A Lenten Exploration of Holy Scripture


Recent research by Forward Movement shows that engagement with the Bible is an important catalyst for spiritual growth in individuals and congregations. And yet, many of us find the Bible to be intimidating, difficult, or just downright weird! We’d like to get to know the Scriptures, but we aren’t sure where to start.
Have you………………

Men's Breakfast Group | Saturday, March 3

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.


Once again, we are using the occasion of the Women’s Retreat to bless others through our generosity. In the fall we met 23 recently homeless folks, who now have their own apartments, and we’d like to help by providing them with the cleaning supplies and other sundry items they need to keep their new homes well cared for. Each woman attending the retreat is being asked to bring one empty laundry basket to church by Feb. 25th which we hope the parishioners of St. Mary’s will help fill. The baskets will be in one of the classrooms off the Beyer Auditorium.
