Message from the Church
Parishioners of St. Basil gather for a photo on the front steps of the church following the first Divine Liturgy (held at the Marriott up the street) after the fire.
Saint Basil is an Orthodox Church located in the southwest loop of Chicago. As a parish we strive to be what Christ has ordained His church to be - a place of worship, service, fellowship, education and witness. As an inner-city parish we believe that we have a unique opportunity to be that "salt of the earth" and "light of the world" that our Lord directs His church to be. We invite you to join us for worship this Sunday and to make St. Basil your spiritual home.
