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.

March 2015 Building Update

Having updated you before on the situation with the school and community center building in regards to our legal process, we now would like to share plans for moving forward in an effort to complete the project...

 


Thanks be to God. The building fund is growing

Pious parishioners, beloved supplicators, dear parents of students in our parish school, brothers and sisters!
