 A BRIEF HISTORY

DSC 0061Founded in 1862, the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour is the oldest – or by some counts, the second-oldest church in Elmhurst. Now in our third location, the church has been an important part of Elmhurst’s history since the time when Elmhurst was known as Cottage Hill.

 

 

Our Saviour today. The congregation has changed considerably during the past 15 years. While we are one of the smaller congregations in Elmhurst,  COS has found new energy and a forward and outward looking spirit.  We are curently in the midst of planning a renovation of our church interior, and we’re involved in our community through the Walk-In-Ministry, and our "Coats for Kids" program which reaches out to the families of children most in need to provide warm winter coats, gloves, hats and scarves. 

DSC 0263We’ve are a companion parish to St. Mark’s church in Jelhak, South Sudan. Each Fall the parish raises money for their congregation. The Bishop of the South Sudanese Diocese of Renk, The Rt. Rev. Joseph Garang Atem, has visited us in the past. This allows us to hear firsthand about the needs of his diocese and St. Mark’s.
