Ongoing Services & Ministries
Sunday Bilingual Worship Service - 10:30 am (12:00 pm on the 3rd Sunday of the Month)
Along with the Nuestra Señora De Las Americas congregation, we express our worship of God through music, praise, Scripture, responses, prayer, and weekly celebration of the Eucharist. Our worship style reflects our diverse cultural traditions. Songs are sung in Spanish, English or both. The sermon is usually in English, but a summary is provided in Spanish. The first Sunday of the month is designed to engage children and youth. Occasionally, we "make our own Sunday" where members use their wisdom, talents and gifts to encourage one another.
Godly Play - 10:30 am (3rd Sunday of the month)
Godly Play' is a unique Montessori-based approach to teach children (K - 6th Grade) spiritual and Biblical truth. "Godly Play currently meets once a month (on the 3rd Sunday) at 10:30 am at the Oasis, 3413 W. Medill.) See the home page each week for updates.
