FUNERAL FOR RON WEBER NEXT SATURDAY 6/1

AT 11:00AM there will be Requiem Mass for our choirmaster/organist and friend. Plans are to have a choir of his many friends sing the anthem and music he requested for his burial. We are expecting a sizable turnout. A luncheon will be served following the service. NOTE: parking is often a problem when we expect many people to attend and you are reminded that there is a city lot at the southeast corner of S. Hennepin and W Third.

SOLEMN EVENSONG NEXT SUNDAY 6/9 AT 5:00 PM

The choir from The Episcopal Church of the Atonement, Chicago is a quite  large choir that sang last year at St Luke’s. If you remember they literally “blew the roof off” with their power sounds. This event is not to br missed. Canterbury concert Series bring this event to us as a wonderful musical experience and to the Glory of God.

DIOCESAN CENTER IN CHICAGO BEING SOLD 

 

Bishop Paula Clark has announced that negotiations are underway for the Cathedral of St James to purchase the property. Thye have shared the facility since it was built in the 1960’s. It is logical that it should once again be under St James ownership since the land was former owned by them. Monies received will be placed in the diocesan endowment fund for ministry. For more details go to episcopalchicago.org

A Commercial Dishwasher for the parish kitchen and a clothes washer and dryer will assist us in keeping thing sparkling clean for our numerous hospitality events and Sunday’s coffee hour. Much thanks to the donors who wish to remain anonymous
