Adult Education (Formation)

Adult Education (Formation) at St. Michael’s is best defined as a way of helping men and women of the parish develop a relationship with God through the structure and teaching of the Church.  Through education we try to encourage our mutual vocations as Christians.  Announcements will be made on the website, in the newsletter and Sunday Bulletins as to upcoming classes and sessions.


 Conversations to nourish your soul . . . Who is God calling you to be?  What do you need to be that person?  What are your most pressing spiritual questions?  What will nourish you on the spiritual journey ahead?


Our Worship

St. Michael’s has two worship services, which are 8 am (Rite I) and 10 am (Rite II).


A powerful spirit pervades our worship services. These services are well-attended, and the congregation is intensely engaged. Our services, based on the Book of Common Prayer, are unique expressions of our faith, grounded in the same traditions as set forth by the National Church and Diocese of Chicago. There is a strong participation across the ministries of Acolytes, Altar Guild, Home Lay Eucharistic Ministers (HLEM), Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEM), Lectors, Ushers, and Musicians.



Our Music

St. Michael’s has always placed a very high value on sacred music. This is apparent in the variety, quality and commitment to music in the liturgy, and to music as a means of spiritual understanding and growth.


St. Michael's Chancel Choir sings each Sunday at the 10 am Eucharist, September through May. The choir leads congregational singing of service music and hymns, and also prepares appropriate seasonal offertory anthems. High standards and goals are set for the group, which is comprised of volunteers with varying levels of ability. The choir’s offerings may include professional vocalists and instrumentalists on major feasts.  


Each of the Sundays of June, July, and August our Occasional Choir sings at the 10:00 am service.   Any and all are invited to gather in the choir loft at 9:15 a.m. for this 'pick-up' choir. We don’t wear robes or process, we only work on easily-learned music and offer it at 10:00 worship. Come and join us for musical fun and worship.


The Children's Choir is a powerful draw for young families. The choir contributes musical offerings throughout the school year and performs a musical drama each December.  Their reheasals are typically on Saturday mornings.
