Despite the colorful autumn leaves, Sunday, November 15, felt like Easter Sunday, as the Shrine community held its inaugural Mass and ceremony at its new interim home in the vintage gymnasium of First Presbyterian Church of Chicago (6400 South Kimbark Ave).

Exciting times! We have been furnishing our future Mass location all this week and still need your prayers and help!

With record speed and support, Woodlawn neighbors and parishioners are working together to help the Shrine of Christ the King, which suffered a devastating fire on October 7, to rise from its ashes in a next door venue located only inches away from this historic landmark church.

The new academic year began at St. Philip Neri International Seminary at the start of September with a spiritual retreat on the theme of the Most Blessed Sacrament as a sign of God's love preached by His Excellency, the Most Reverend Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop in Astana, Kazakhstan.
