“St. Sabina was never your traditional church” Father Pfleger shared, as he reminded the congregation last Sunday at St. Sabina’s 100th Anniversary Worship Service that the church had its first worship service in a storefront candy store on July 9, 1916.

This beautiful service was an opportunity for St. Sabina to celebrate its unique origins, while shining light on its high spirited worship service, and the various outreach efforts that serve as the fabric of what St. Sabina has become today.  Father Pfleger reminded the congregation during his sermon, that St. Sabina has always been a church that has opened its doors to everyone in the community, no matter their race, background, or socio-economic status. The worship service featured performances by Irish bag pipes musicians, African drummers, and a four-man mariachi band.

The celebration for St. Sabina will continue on October 29th, as we invite all of you to join us for our 100th Anniversary Gala.
