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!
During Holy Week, we will celebrate the Liturgy of the Last Supper on Thursday 2 April at 7:00pm. On Saturday 4 April we will meet at 11:00pm for the celebration of Tenebrae, and at midnight we will celebrate the Divine Liturgy for Easter Sunday including the singing of the Praeconium Paschale.
May will see the Feast of St. Phillip on Saturday 2 May at 7:00pm. We will celebrate the Theocletian Rite for this feast.
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]
