All Are Welcome!

at St. Edward and Christ

At St. Edward and Christ all are welcome: seekers, doubters, life-long Christians, and those who got fed up with the church and left it, but now have a sense that something is missing in their lives.

Here you will find an inclusive, inviting, and child-friendly community. Questions and inquiry are encouraged. The current members are politically liberal and conservative, young and retired, life-long Episcopalians and raised in other traditions. Here you will find adults who are married and partnered, divorced and single, remarried and widowed. All are welcome at the Lord’s Table to receive Holy Communion.

Whether you visit us on the web or attend worship, you bless us with your interest, your prayers, and your presence.

St. Edward and Christ is a Two Campus Parish


St. Edward Campus (SEC) located in central Joliet at 206 N. Midland Avenue was built in 1953. SEC is a traditional church setting and liturgies offered tend to be traditional.Holy Eucharist is held every Sunday at 8:30 am.

Christ Campus was purchased in 2008 to extend the Episcopal tradition into Kendall county. A former farm site, Christ Campus offers open spaces, the Great Barn, a pond, and a house where the people of God gather to worship and play. Liturgies offered tend to be informal and conversational. Worship services are offered in the renovated Barn known as The Worship Center. Holy Eucharist is held every Sunday at 10:30 am.

Children are invited to worship with their parents as members of the worshiping community. Communal worship is the primary means through which children are formed in the Christian faith. They learn from observing the religious practices, prayers, and attitudes of those who walk before them on their journey of faith.

Children receive Holy Communion at the request of their parents. Many toddlers receive their first communion when they are old enough to reach out their hand. Jesus said, “let the little children come to me.”
