Description

Join us for an evening of liturgy & scripture. A time to pray, light candles, and sing. Space to let ourselves lament...our personal sorrows and the hurt and brokenness all around us...and walk toward hope for a more generous, just and loving world.

LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE. RESERVE YOURS EARLY.

We are not charging for this event because we want to make it available to everyone. So we ask, if you are able, when you register, to choose a DONATION ticket, to help us defray the costs. But if you aren't able to give, no worries...we want you to be here. Simply choose the Free ticket option.

FAQs

Is there an age limit for this event?

This event is open to all ages, however, parts of the evening will be quiet and meditative, so it is not recommended for small children. Currently, there is no nursery available.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Pilgrim Church is located on Lake Street a couple blocks west of Ridgeland in Oak Park. Free parking is available in the large parking lot adjacent to the building. The Lake Street entrance has accessibility for disabled persons. Public Transportation: it's just a short walk from the Ridgeland stop of the Green Line train.

University Church is located in Hyde Park on the northeast corner of 57th and University. There are two entrances: one on University Avenue, and another in the courtyard on 57th Street, where there is accessibility for disabled persons. Street parking (non-metered) is available daily.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Once you have RSVP'd and gotten either a Donation or a Free ticket, you are welcome to give your ticket to someone else.
