The community of the Holy Trinity currently have member openings, for singles or couples.
We are accepting inquiries for any who are interested in exploring joining the Community of the Holy Trinity.
We are a house of the ecumenical religious order, the Order of Jesus Christ, Reconciler (the order has members in Milwaukee and Detroit, and a second house in Detroit); two of our current members are professed of the order. Our daily life together consists of daily prayer (currently focused on prayer in the evening) meals together on weekdays, and a breakfast and community meeting on Saturday mornings. We don’t have a common purse, but pool resources based on the ability of each member to contribute to pay for rent, utilities, food, and other shared expenses. Members are encouraged to participate in a local Christian congregation or parish of their choosing or denominational affiliation. We are looking for baptized Christians who feel lead to communal life as a way to deepen their Christian faith and following of Jesus Christ.
We are currently located in the Albany Park neighborhood of Chicago, in a first floor apartment duplex down with 5 bedrooms, 3 on the first floor, two on the garden floor. The available rooms are a small suite with a walk in closet attached to a private full bath on the first floor, that could be suitable for a couple, and a smaller room on the Garden floor. The apartment has two kitchens, one on each floor. On the first floor, there’s a dining room, living room, chapel, sunroom and shared bathroom; on the garden floor, there’s a shared bathroom, shared office, a library, and shared art/music studio. There is only street parking available to the community. Most of our members use public transportation and bicycles for transportation. We are close to various public transportation options: two blocks from the Kedzie stop on the Brown line, and three blocks from the 82 Kimball/Homan Bus line, two blocks from the 79 Montrose bus line, and 4 blocks from the 81 Lawrence Bus line.
We live under a shared rule of life. You can find the rule here.
