RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH IN CHICAGO

Welcome!

Welcome to the parish website of the Holy Virgin Protection Cathedral, a Russian Orthodox church located in Des Plaines, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Our church is a prominent place of worship for all the Russian Orthodox who live in Chicago and has as its goal the preservation of the spiritual traditions and the treasure of church services of ancient Russian Orthodoxy.  We are glad you are visiting our site and would like to invite you to acquaint yourself with our church and parish by exploring other pages. We hope to see you in person in our church where you will be able to enjoy the iconographic art, hear the splendid singing of our choir and to share in the joy of our Divine Services.

REGULAR SATURDAY SERVICES

Starting in the month of October, regular Saturday services will begin at the cathedral.  The Saturday services (Vigil and Divine Liturgy) differ in their focus on in terms of commemorating the departed.  In this regard, these services are therefore our closest connection with the souls of the departed and offer the most important opportunity for us to pray for the souls of our departed ancestors.
