St. Paul Lutheran Church Holds German Christmas Service

Updated 11/26/2021 9:35 AM

After a year off due to COVID 19, St. Paul Lutheran Church in Mount Prospect will be again hosting its annual German language Christmas Service on Saturday, December 18th at 5:00 p.m.

St. Paul Lutheran Church was founded in 1912 by German farmers and small businessmen residing the area that was soon to become the village of Mount Prospect. Church services were held in German until the late 1930's and the congregations' Lutheran School taught the German language into the mid '70s.


In 2011, a German Christmas Service was reintroduced as a kickoff to the church's 100-year anniversary. It was so well received by the congregation's members and the broader community that it was turned into an annual tradition.

While the traditional Lutheran service will be conducted in German, an English translation of the sermon will be available. Musical selections will be sung by the German-American Singers of Chicago Choir.

The church is located at 100 S. School St. in Mount Prospect on the corner of Busse Ave. and School St. Masks will be required.
