I'm New Here!

Fists in Solidarity

If you’re new to the neighborhood, new to Church of Our Saviour, or maybe this is your first time visiting an Episcopal church, our Sunday morning worship services offer you the chance to explore your love for God and meet some wonderful new people.

 

We gather for worship together at 7:45am, 9:00am, and 10:45am on Sundays and children's education is offered at 10:00am (September through May). Direction and parking information can be found here.

Come for the worship. Stay for some coffee!


We host a simple coffee hour after each service for some fellowship, so please join us in the Parish Hall after service. 

Finally, let us know you're coming! We'd love to greet you properly, so take a quick second to complete the form below. If you are interested in membership at Church of Our Saviour you can contact the office for more information. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Current COVID-19 Protocols:

 

  • Masks will be encouraged, but not required for those attending in-person worship and other in-person programs and events at COS throughout the week. Masks will still be available at Sunday services for those who may need one.

  • Please join us virtually you have any flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days or is you are unable to be fully vaccinated or have an underlying medical condition.​

  • At the distribution of Communion, we ask that you please use the spray sanitizer provided in the pews prior to receiving the Host. Instructions will be given on how Communion will be shared at the service.

  • Communion will be distributed in one-kind only, with the reminder that to receive in one-kind is to receive the fullness of the Sacrament. The wine in the Chalice will be consumed by the Celebrant only.​

  • If a worshiper desires a blessing instead of Communion, the blessing will be offered verbally only.​

  • Preachers, presiders, and lectors may remove their masks when reading in the chancel, unless there are standing at the altar with the communion elements present. 

  • Communion may be offered around the altar for the 9:00am service and at the Communion railing for the 7:45am and 10:45am services. If you prefer more distance, you may stand to the outside of the railings. 

  • Coffee hours follow the 9:00am and 10:45am services.

  • Greeting one another with hugs and handshakes may resume, but we please be mindful of varied comfort levels among those in our community and check in before offering a hug or a handshake. 

If you wish to receive Communion in your home, please contact the office to schedule a visit by the Rector or a Eucharistic Minister.

 

We understand and appreciate that there will be a range of emotions within our community in response to these changes. Please know that you are lovingly and respectfully welcome at COS, whatever your comfort level, as we all continue to navigate this challenging time. 

We continue to offer family baptisms, weddings, and funerals. Please contact the office with any requests or questions. For wedding inquiries, please contact our Wedding Coordinator

These guidelines are reviewed periodically or as needed by our COS Reopening Committee, who make recommendations to the vestry. You may contact the office with any questions about our safety practices. 

 

 

Please follow this helpful COVID-19 dashboard updated by the city each day which displays

current data for the Chicago area, and we encourage all able persons to please get vaccinated.
