Beloved Faithful
Holy Metropolis of Chicago

Dearly Beloved,

As we journey through Great Lent to Pascha, we are excited to present to all our faithful a spiritually uplifting opportunity to attend a screening of Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer, a new film by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and author Dr. Norris J. Chumley and the noted Orthodox author, Very Rev. Prof. John A. McGuckin.  Dr. Chumley will be present to offer a reflection and answer questions from the audience. 

All proceeds from the sale of tickets will benefit the Saint Iakovos Retreat Center of our Holy Metropolis.  With thanks to the owners of the Pickwick Theatre of Park Ridge, IL, each ticket will provide admittance to the screening, as well as a free popcorn and soft drink.  Free parking is available, and it is certain to be a spiritually rewarding event during this Lenten season.  Additional information about the movie and to view the trailer please visit
