In the coming months, St. Michael’s will continue celebrating liturgy on a “feast day” basis, rather than on a regular day. This only affects services at our home parish in Kenosha. If you are in the Chicago (IL) or Chesterton (IN) areas however, you are welcome to attend services at our sister locations, the Parish of St. John the Revelator and St. Bernard of Clairveaux Narthex. Each meets at least monthly for liturgy and welcomes you!
We have just returned from a wonderful Conclave in Harrisburg, PA at St. Eve’s parish. Thank you to everyone who made this fantastic event come together. Our next conclave will be in May of 2016 in Boston, MA and will be hosted by St. Sarah’s parish.
June will see the Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist on Saturday 27 June at 7:00pm. We will celebrate the Theocletian Rite for this feast.
In July we will celebrate the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene on the 25th at 7:00pm, using the Theocletian Rite.
About our liturgical rites:
The Theocletian Rite is a formal liturgy influenced by both the Johannite Congregational Rite and traditional Orthodox Christian practise.
We will also celebrate the Contemplative Rite by request. If you have a particular time that would work well for you and would like to experience this majestic and instrospective rite of the Apostolic Johannite Church, please contact us and we will be happy to schedule something for you at your home, office, or at our locations. The Contemplative Rite is much more informal, provides a much greater opportunity for participation by the congregation, and is meant to facilitate a group meditation in the context of the Eucharist.
If you are interested in joining us for any of our liturgies, please contact the Rector at [email protected]
