Welcome Troop 15 and Thank You!

We are happy to welcome Troop 15 Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts. And, we thank them for participating in our Veterans Day Tribute at our service on Sunday.

Thanks to all who visited us at Joliet Pride Fest!!

Here you will find an inclusive and inviting community. Questions and inquiry are encouraged. The current members are politically liberal and conservative, young and retired, life-long Episcopalians and those raised in other tradtions. 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.

Episcopal Charities Grant

We are happy to announce that for the second year we received a grant from Episcopal Charities to maintain and expand our “Fields of Friendship” program. This program is the collaborative effort of St. Ed and Christ and other local faith communities in the Joliet area to supply locally grown produce to community food pantries. In addition, the “field” provides an outdoor space for the community and the church’s youth and children’s events. We are excited to continue to grow this program over the next year!

Warren Sharpe Day at the Farm

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with our second Day at the Farm for the clients of the Warren Sharpe Center. The day included art projects, a water balloon toss and learning about horses. A special thank you to Ready, Set, Ride in Plainfield for bringing the horses. It was a great day and all had a fantastic time.

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. 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.”
