Raising the Roof Anglican Church Finds a New Home


Sneller, Beth, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)

It's amazing what a small number of people can accomplish when they truly believe in something.

Mark Maute of Lisle has learned that firsthand as he has watched All Saints Anglican Church build a permanent home in Bolingbrook in just seven years with a membership of only 70 people.

"It's pretty remarkable for a church with a parish the size that we have, to have the financial commitment of our members to build something like this," said Maute, the senior warden of the parish.

To be fair, All Saints isn't exactly building its facility from scratch. The parishioners are completely redoing the sanctuary of their new church, a former funeral home that happened to be just the right size for the congregation.

This isn't even the first funeral home All Saints has occupied.

The church started in 1996 when a few members of a Naperville Episcopalian church began to yearn for a more traditional approach to worship.

The names Episcopalian and Anglican are synonymous in the United States. All Saints, however, is not part of the Episcopalian Church in the United States of America, or ECUSA. It is a member of the more conservative Anglican Province of Christ the King.

All Saints' founding members decided they wanted to bring the more conservative of the Episcopalian denominations into the Chicago area. So they found a Naperville funeral home and began to meet there.

At first, the church had only a part-time priest who traveled here from the East Coast about every three weeks. Then a priest from Wisconsin made regular trips to minister to the members of All Saints.

Finally, in September of 2000, the Rev. John Hines became the church's first full-time pastor.

By that time, All Saints was worshipping in another rented building in downtown Naperville. By 2002, the church had found a permanent location - a funeral home at the corner of Boughton Road and Route 53.

All Saints' first church service in its new building was a year ago this month. Parishioners say they can hardly believe how far they've come.

"In the span of just a few years, we've gone from owning nothing to owning what we consider to be a valuable piece of property in Bolingbrook," Maute said.

While it was the perfect size, the funeral home building didn't look much like a church. Church members knew they needed to do some major renovations before they could truly feel they had found a home. …
