Current Schedule

Dear friends:

St. Michael’s is again gathering as a community on a more informal basis.  Please join us at Uncommon Ground at 1401 W. Devon Ave. in Chicago on the following dates:

4 February, 2020 at 7:00pm  Topic:  Simon Magus. We will see if we can cajole our Seminarian Michael Baker into telling us all about this often misunderstood figure from Greek Bible.

Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel (or hopefully just postpone) our February meeting, but we will update this page if and when we reschedule!

17 March, 2020 at 7:00pm  Topic:  Jacques de Molay. The last undisputed Grand Master of the Templars and a martyr for the Order, de Molay represents a pivotal figure in Templar history.

14 April, 2020 at 7:00pm  Topic:  TBD. Come and bring your own ideas to discuss!

7 May, 2020 at 7:00pm  Topic:  Julian of Norwich. An anchoress and mystic, Julian is one of the many extraordinary women that form part of the history of the church.

24 June, 2020 at 7:00pm  Topic:  St John the Baptist. A link between the old and the new, John Baptist stands at the very center (with his cousin Jesus and the Apostle John) of the Johannite Tradition as we have inherited it

If you are interested in joining us for any of our liturgies or other events, please contact the Rector at [email protected]

We expect to begin celebrating the liturgy regularly in the coming year.

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.
