Please Welcome: Presiding Bishop ++Katharine To Visit Feb 3!!

This is huge, HUGE news for St Nicholas: we’ve been informed that on her upcoming visit to Chicago, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will not only visit us, she will preside at the service! We will hold 1 service on Sunday, February 3, at 9:00 am. This will be the last Sunday of Epiphany, and Shrove Monday (and Fat Tuesday) follow immediately. Then, we will go into Lent with humility and hope (and fully charged spiritual batteries).

Presiding Bishop ++Katharine will be in Chicago for the consecration of our new bishop, +Jeffrey Lee, but is taking time from her busy schedule to be with us that Sunday. We’re over the moon at the news!

Here is some information from her website:
