Outreach is central to the Christian life. Jesus said, “Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me’” (Matthew 25:37-40).
Along with our support of our Diocesan ministry, Church of Our Saviour reaches out into the community through its support of Elmhurst Walk-In-Ministry, After School ministry, Coats for Kids, and through our support of the Church in the South Sudan and South East Mexico.
The parish will soon conduct an outreach assessment to ensure we are supporting important projects in the community and developing significant relationships with those whom we serve.
All Angels Guild, A Ministry to the Deaf
The All Angels Guild program began over sixty years ago and has continued to reinvent itself as it’s sponsorship transferred from St James Episcopal Cathedral to Bishop Anderson House, an Episcopal Charity in the Diocese of Chicago. Today it’s outreach extends itself to people of all faiths throughout the Chicago area. This is in large part due to their location at the center of the Diocese at Church of Our Saviour in Elmhurst as well as their cooperation with The Du Page Center for Independent Living located in Glen Ellyn. They are the only religious organization in the Chicago area to have an association with another non-profit agency that assists deaf, as well as disabled, people.
All Angel’s Guild meets on the first Thursday every month at Church of Our Saviour in the Undercroft from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
