Effective March 13, 2020, all in-person worship and meetings in all churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago, including Grace, have been suspended in an effort to control the spread of COVID-19.  Accordingly, we won’t gather for in-person worship until further notice. All meetings at, and sponsored by Grace are suspended until further notice.  This page contains information and resources to keep us connected during this time. An update from our bishop, continuing the suspension of in-person worship in our diocese (5/1/20), is here.

Episcopal CHurch

In Brief:

  • There are no in-person meetings, gatherings or worship at Grace Church until further notice (this includes all 12-Step groups, and outside groups). These will be rescheduled.

  • During this period of fasting from in-person contact let's remember that we can stay connected by praying for one another, by calling one another, and by reminding ourselves that by staying apart temporarily what we're actually doing is coming together to stay together.

  • Effective March 22, Housing Forward announced that all their clients were moved to individual accommodations rather than providing a PADS shelter site.

  • Parent's Time Out
    Stressed out at home right now? Finding a routine that works for your family? Mondays at 9:00 p.m. CDT on Zoom all parents are invited (even those who are not members of the Grace community) who wish to share what it's like right now parenting during this shelter-in-place. This group will be a place to relax and take a breath, hear some encouragement, share wisdom or worries, and have a brief prayer time (we don't want to add another "meeting" to your schedule - you can always come and go as you need, and the gathering will last no more than 10-15 minutes). Father John will facilitate this meeting at first with some open-ended questions and invitations to share, and he is open to parents who wish to take the lead in subsequent meetings. You can join by clicking here (use password, case sensitive: GraceOP). Let your neighbors, friends, relatives know that all are welcome!
