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 first and third Sunday at 8:30 am and Morning Prayer is offered the other Sundays of the month 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 the Great Barn, open spaces, a pond, and a house. Worship services are offered in the Great Barn. Holy Eucharist is held every first and third Sunday at 10:30 am and Morning Prayer is offered the other Sundays of the month 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.”
