St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church

Sharing the Gospel of Christ Since 1979

The Holy Orthodox Church of Saint Sophia and Her three daughters, Faith, Hope and Love is a Community of Orthodox Christians who strive to love their God with all their hearts, souls and minds. With this, we seek to love our neighbors as ourselves. The goals of our parish are to equip its faithful stewards for the work of its ministries: for the building up of the Body of Christ. Through this we grow together in the grace, and knowledge of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
As a community serving Orthodox Christians in the Elgin/Fox Valley area, we have been Blessed with so much. By the Grace of God we enjoy a beautiful new Church. Its numerous programs are explained within this web site. The greatest sign of appreciation and thanksgiving towards the Lord, is to pass our Orthodox Faith onto our children. We must preserve, enhance, build and make secure the present and future of Christ's Holy Church.We invite all Orthodox Christians to become Stewards of Saint Sophia, and for you who are, I thank you for keeping the ministry alive.

Click on this link for detailed information
In an effort to assist with the nationwide need for face coverings, Philoptochos and Stewards of Saint Sophia who have the ability to do so are asked to get those needles and sewing machines out. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance. For patterns, please click here.
Please contact Kathy Katrakis,, if you are interested in volunteering.
