Hardy H. Kim preaching | Jazz Communion Service
With the songs of joy-filled children and the waving of palms we marked one of the most festive and favorite of days at Fourth Church: Palm Sunday!
Now as we turn our eyes to the cross, we hope you will be with us on Maundy Thursday—when we will gather for a Communion service at 12:10 p.m. and for the moving Tenebrae service at 7:30 p.m.—and then again on Good Friday, when Shannon Kershner will preach at 12:10 p.m. and the Morning Choir will sing Frank Ferko’s Stabat Mater at 7:30 p.m. Children will have opportunity to take part in their own Good Friday observance—a time for various activities relating to the day—at 5:30 p.m. in Buchanan Chapel.
A complete schedule of Holy Week and Easter services is online.
Meditation: Homage to Ines Marigi (mosaic triptych) by Verdiano Marzi
If you have stopped by the Loggia recently, you will have seen on display the beautiful mosaics of Italian artist Verdiano Marzi. This first-ever U.S. exhibition of Mr. Marzi’s works, presented in collaboration with the Chicago Mosaic School, will be on display through Tuesday, June 30.
On Friday, April 10 we will be honored to have Mr. Marzi with us for an artist reception. Please plan to join us at 6:00 p.m. that evening in the Loggia for an opportunity to hear the artist talk about these amazingly intricate works.
On March 6, 600 guests gathered for the Chicago Lights Gala of Hope 2015, where they—along with dedicated staff and volunteers, sponsors and patrons, donors and drawing participants—helped gross a record-breaking $772,000 to help support Chicago Lights and the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being.
To all who made possible this extraordinary gift of hope for those facing the challenges of poverty in our city—thank you!
