Formation at CHN

At CHN, we believe the liturgy forms us. Worship together is the core of formation here. We also have many opportunities to learn and grow for all ages. These include book studies, adult forums, Sunday School, committees, leadership and service opportunities, Coffee Hour, Lenten supper series, and more. 


Poverty, by America

One Book, One Diocese

The Peace and Justice Committee invites the Diocese of Chicago to participate in year two of their “One Book, One Diocese“ program. For 2024, the book selection is Poverty, by America, by Matthew Desmond. ​“One Book, One Diocese” is a four-year sequence of diocesan readings that address the four interlocking evil systems outlined in the Poor People’s Campaign: racism, poverty, militarism and the war economy, and ecological devastation. In 2023, the program focused on racism, with participants reading and discussing Resurrection Hope: A Future Where Black Lives Matter by the Very Reverend Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas. ​


Congregations and individuals are invited to read and discuss Desmond’s book. Keep an eye out for an announcement of CHN's discussions, which will take place this summer.
