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:

13 February 2019 at 7:00pm  Topic:  Holy Valentinus.  Valentinus was a 2nd century Christian leader, and presents one of the most well-known Gnostic cosmologies.

20 March 2019 at 7:00pm  Topic:  Holy Jacques de Molay.  The last known leader of the Templars, de Molay represents the Templar strength and dignity in the face of persecution.

10 April 2019 at 7:00pm  Topic:  TBA

1 May 2019 at 7:00pm  Topic:  St. Philip.  The purported author of one of the most important of the Gnostic gospels, Philip is a figure that features significantly in both Gnostic and mainstream Christian history.

16-21 May  Conclave in Montréal, QC Canada.  Please see the main AJC page for more information and registration details. Come join us in the City of Saints for workshops, panels, liturgies, and fellowship.

19 June 2019 at 7:00pm  Topic:  St Uriel.  Of the four archangels generally referred to in the Western Mystery Tradition, only Uriel is not mentioned by name in the bible. Often misunderstood, they are generally attributed to the element of Earth, but also characterised as the angel of Death.

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.
