Homeschool Matins

On the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month between September and May, is "Homeschool Matins."  Families from Niles, Chicago, Skokie, Bensenville, Mount Prospect, and other villages gather at 10:30 for a brief a Capella prayer service.  The readings and hymns are accessible for children and reflect the Church Year.  Pastor Gunia preaches a sermon for the children, centered on Jesus' forgiveness of their sins.


After the 20-minute Matins service, families are invited to the gym where children have the opportunity to play and build friendship, while parents likewise talk about life, parenting, or whatever comes up.  Feel free to bring lunch or a snack.


EVERYONE is invited to this public worship service, whether you homeschool, have children in traditional school, or have completed your formal education.
