Christ is in our midst!
St. Makarios the Great is an Orthodox Mission Church planted on the South Side of Chicago in 2008. We are located at the corner of 53rd and Blackstone in the upper room of the United Church of Hyde Park. (1448 E 53rd St, Chicago, IL 60615). We also 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.
