In the coming months we will continue celebrating liturgy on a “feast day” basis, rather than on a regular day. Currently, we are only offering services at our home parish in Kenosha. However, we hope to begin celebrating the Eucharist at St. John the Revelator Parish in Chicago again very soon.
In August, we will be celebrating the wedding of our own Deacon John Digilio, and will not have a regularly scheduled liturgy.
- The Feast of John Chrysostom and The Descent of the Holy Sophia (September 13, Saturday): We will celebrate these feasts together at 7:00pm in Kenosha, WI. We will also be doing Martinist work on this day, and all brother and sister Martinists are welcome in our lodge.
- The Feast of the Martyrdom of the Holy Templars (October 11, Saturday): We will celebrate this feast, one of the most important in the Johannite tradition, at 8:00pm in Kenosha, WI. Please note the later start time!
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] or phone 1-262-SAINTM-0
