Wednesday Evenings in Great Lent
St. Makarios was founded in 2008 as an Orthodox parish to reach out to the University of Chicago and the broader South Side, which has lacked an Orthodox presence for many years. Interest originated with a variety of students and families at the University of Chicago who desired to have a local parish for themselves and as a witness to friends and community. Both the number of students and non-University community members who are aware of our mission and attending is growing. We are of many ethnic backgrounds and prior religious backgrounds, and we worship in English, with some repetition of phrases or prayers in several other languages. If you are in the area, please join us!
