Welcome to St. Elisabeth’s

We worship in the Episcopal tradition. The Table set in our midst is God’s Table and has no specific denominational or religious label.  As God’s children all are welcome to receive communion there.

A welcoming, inclusive congregation in the Village of Glencoe in the North Shore of Chicago, we are an Episcopal Church, part of the Diocese of Chicago, the Episcopal Church in the United States—one of many churches that make up the world-wide Anglican Communion.

 St. Elisabeth’s book discussion group is taking a closer look at the seven deadly sins. By reading and discussing selected short works of fiction the group is exploring what some of the great authors think about good and evil, right and wrong, sin and virtue.

The group meets at 10:30 a.m. the third Thursday of the month in the Living Room to discuss two of the 14 short story masterpieces found in the Seven Deadly Sins Sampler, volume 1 of a two volume set published by the Great Books Foundation. Two copies of the book are available for loan in the church office. Drop-ins are always welcome.  For more information please contact Joyce Newcomb at grandnewks@aol.com.
