Current Schedule

Dear friends:

Starting soon, St. Michael’s will again be gathering as a community, though on a more informal basis.  Please join us at Kopi: A Traveller’s Cafe at 5317 N Clark St in Chicago on the following dates:

23 December at 3:00pm

9 January at 7:00pm  Topic:  Epiphany/Theophany.  Theopany celebrates both the baptism of Christ at the hands of St. John Baptist and also the revelation of the Trinity.

13 February 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 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 persuecution.

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.
