Who We Are
The Church of the Advent has been the Episcopal Church in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, since 1901. Our neighborhood has seen many changes throughout the past century, and our mission is integrally linked to serving our dynamic community.
A significant portion of our neighborhood is Latino/Hispanic, and we share facilities and many ministries with our sister congregation, Nuestra Señora de las Americas. Our own congregation is a vibrant blend of ethnicities, racial and social backgrounds, and English and Spanish speakers.
Like all churches, we are a local community; we are also connected to a much larger community of Episcopalians across Chicago’s metropolitan area, Northern Illinois, the nation and the world. Think of it as a family tree. We are part of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago (www.episcopalchicago.org) under the leadership of our Bishop, Jeffrey Lee. We are connected to the nationwide Episcopal Church (www.episcopalchurch.org). And we are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion (www.anglicancommunion.org). If you’d like to know more about the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition of Christianity, a great resource of information and weekly news is found at www.anglicansonline.org.
