Dear Visitor,

St. Makarios the Great Orthodox Mission parish is the first Orthodox parish to be planted on the South Side of Chicago since the earlier waves of immigration in the 19th and 20th century. We serve as the Orthodox Christian Chaplaincy at the University of Chicago, and provide an Orthodox Christian presence, witnessing to the broader South Side.Whether you are an Orthodox Christian looking for a neighborhood parish, a spiritual seeker, or a curious inquirer, all are welcome! Come visit. See the beauty and profundity of our liturgy and sacramental life; the truth, wisdom and light of Orthodox teachings; the gentle strength of our healing pastoral care for the person; and the generous liberality of our concern for our neighbor.The links at the top of this page provide more information about Orthodoxy, in general, and our parish, in particular.
