Welcome to Saint Peter's Episcopal Church, located in the heart of Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood.
Here you will find a diverse parish filled with people from all walks of life — single, married, children, partnered, gay, straight, families, young, and not-so-young.
Come in and you'll find rich worship rooted in ancient liturgy, real community with people who will become your friends, and relevant ways to help you grow in Christ and serve the people of the world.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey — doubting, full-of-faith, or in between, there's a place at God's table set for you here.
Over the past 25 years, the Souper Bowl of Caring has become a powerful, national movement that is transforming the time around Super Bowl weekend into the nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving. Through this event, St. Peter’s has raised $2,400, and collected 64 food items and 50 pounds of food for the Lakeview Pantry. Please give generously on Super Bowl Sunday—a special collection will take place today, following both the 8 and 11 a.m. services. Every food item and dollar donated goes to the Lakeview Pantry, our charity of choice.

"Soul Feast" begins on February 1
What can help ground us in God's way of peace, honor, love, and joy? In the weeks leading up to Easter, we will explore the spiritual practices of prayer, reflection, worship, and life commitments that can tangibly impact our spiritual growth both personally and corporately. The essential purpose of this study is to come together to discover greater intimacy and freedom in our relationship with God. Topics of discussion include prayer, common worship, fasting, self-examination, and hospitality. These topics are especially timely as we approach the season of Lent!
Our guide for this study is Soul Feast: An Invitation to the Christian Spiritual Life, written by Marjorie J. Thompson. This book is clear, concise, and extremely practical. We'll focus on a chapter each week, and although participants are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible, each session is stand-alone, so you can jump in at any time. Copies of the book will be available for $16.00. (You can also purchase the book electronically. Several scholarships are available to purchase the book. See Fr. Steve if a scholarship is needed.) The series, led by St. Peter's clergy, begins February 1, 9:30AM, in the Guild Room.
