For more than 160 years, Church of Our Saviour’s parish hall has been at the center of our community life. Religious events, family celebrations, community gatherings, and more, our beloved parish hall has served us well.
After decades of heavy use, many parts of the parish hall were showing signs of wear and had passed their natural end of life. In 2012, recognizing the need for a space that could support the growing mission and ministry of COS for years to come, plans are underway for a new building. Working in partnership with Care for Friends, we have an opportunity to replace our aging parish hall and help secure the future of our historic campus, with a new and modernized Community Center. This new building will provide new opportunities not only for COS and Care For Friends, but for the whole Lincoln Park neighborhood!
About the Project
The new building will replace our current parish hall with an updated, three-story building that will support Church of Our Saviour’s programs and activities.
The new building will connect to our historic sanctuary in a way that is compliant with modern fire codes and be fully accessible while leaving the historic beauty of our 150-year-old worship space unaltered.

The Financial Plan
We are excited to partner with Care for Friends in constructing the new building. With their support, we have secured more than half of the funds needed to complete our new space.
This project will not happen without everyone's support.
The project will require broad participation from our community - incorporating many gifts of many sizes - to finish securing the funding needed to break ground.
