St. Paul’s takes worship to the streets

Published: Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 1:10 p.m. CDT

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church will partner again with Northern Illinois University’s Grace Place Campus Ministry to offer “Ashes on the Go” outside St. Paul’s at 900 Normal Road, and outside Grace Place on the corner of Lucinda and Normal roads. Ashes on the Go will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Last year, 30 churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago, and many other churches around the country, participated in this outdoor offering of prayer to mark the beginning of the season of Lent.

St. Paul’s also invites everyone to its traditional Ash Wednesday services with Holy Communion and Imposition of Ashes at 8 a.m. (spoken service) and 6 p.m. (sung service). A soup supper will follow at 7 p.m. Grace Place also will have a service at its location at 9 p.m.

All Christians are welcome to receive Holy Communion at St. Paul’s and Grace Place. St. Paul’s also is handicap accessible. For more information, contact the church at 815-756-4888 or visit and
