In early summer of 2007, Archbishop JOB (Osacky) undertook a personal project, the musical arrangement of the service of Paraklisis (supplicatory canon to the Most-holy Theotokos) in four-part harmony, employing the Carpatho-Rusyn Sacred Chant (Cerkovnoje Prostopinije). In the hymnographical spirit of "Come, all who love the feasts, let us form a choir..." several singers were recruited informally from among the various parishes in the Greater Chicago area to form a men's choir.
The St. Alexis Men's Chorus of Chicago has released a CD of the Paraklisis arranged and directed by His Eminence, Archbishop JOB. Proceeds from the sale of this CD will go to the Seminarian Scholarship Fund of the diocese of the Midwest. The CDs are available at the candle desk and also in the Cathedral's Book Store for $15. Stop by to purchase one!
The long anticipated CD of Holy Trinity’s Cathedral Choir, under the direction of Deacon Gregory Ealy, is now available for purchase. Let Our Mouths Be Filled With Thy Praise, O Lord!, is truly a labor of love as well as being some beautiful liturgical music.
The selections presented are not only taken from the rich and ancient chants of the Church, but also include recent compositions. CDs are available for $15 each.
Please contact Justin Kneeland or visit the parish bookstore to purchase CDs.

Josiah and Julia love to go to church. They love to venerate the icons, light candles, and eat the blessed bread. Sometimes they behave very well--but sometimes they make mistakes. Little ones can follow Josiah and Julia through the Liturgy and learn how even the youngest child can honor God by behaving properly in church.
This book will make the perfect gift for your youngest children, grandchildren, or godchildren.
