RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH IN CHICAGO

Welcome!

Welcome to the parish website of the Holy Virgin Protection Cathedral, a Russian Orthodox church located in Des Plaines, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Our church is a prominent place of worship for all the Russian Orthodox who live in Chicago and has as its goal the preservation of the spiritual traditions and the treasure of church services of ancient Russian Orthodoxy.  We are glad you are visiting our site and would like to invite you to acquaint yourself with our church and parish by exploring other pages. We hope to see you in person in our church where you will be able to enjoy the iconographic art, hear the splendid singing of our choir and to share in the joy of our Divine Services.

BISHOP ASSEMBLY YOUTH DIALOGUE

In conjunction with the Assembly of Orthodox Bishops meeting that will take place this year in Chicago, a dialogue with the youth (high school and college age young people) will take place on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 6PM at the Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Cathedral on Redwood Drive.

The Youth & Young Adult Gathering will begin with a Vespers service at 6PM and will be followed by a panel discussion featuring members of the Bishops' Assembly who will speak and answer questions.

After the panel discussion, participants are invited to a meal and fellowship in the Main Hall hosted by the Cathedral community. “We are honored to host the Bishops in our community, and look forward to this panel discussion and conversation between our hierarchs and youth. This is an important dialogue especially since the panel of Bishops will be answering questions that our youth will pose, avoiding a frequent trap of answering questions that nobody is actually asking, and so I look forward to a large turnout of Orthodox youth and young adults," said V. Reverend Fr. Darko Spasojevic, Cathedral Dean at Holy Resurrection.

All Orthodox parish and diocesan youth organizations, schools, college ministries, and interested individuals in the area are invited and encouraged to attend.

In order to ensure there are enough food and refreshments for everyone, clergy and/or organization leaders are asked to RSVP by email to contact@serbiancathedral.org with an approximate head count by September 7th, 2015.

ST SAVA ACADEMY LEADERS MEET WITH BISHOP PETER

Senior representatives of Saint Sava Academy, Principal Marko Bojovic and Board President Nenad Djordjevic, met with His Grace Bishop Peter informing him of plans for the upcoming school year, curriculum enhancements, and enrollment trends, particularly noting the increase in students in the Academy's Russian-language program as part of the overall growth in the student body.

Bojovic and Djordjevic also expressed the Academy's deep gratitude for Bishop Peter's strong support of the Academy's mission and Orthodox education, and presented Vladika with a commemorative certificate of appreciation.

Established in 2001, Saint Sava Academy is an accredited PreK-8 elementary school at Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in Chicago, offering dual-language education in either Serbian or Russian language tracks, in an Orthodox Christian environment.  Last year, the academy graduated two students from our parish.
