Origin
Poster for The Annual Bazaar hosted by Sts. Peter & Paul Greek Orthodox Church on December 1, 1982 in Glenview, IL. PARISH HISTORY: In the winter of 1958 a number of Greek Orthodox Christians met to discuss their common need for a parish in Chicago’s northern suburbs. On the 25th of March 1960, the new community was granted an ecclesiastical charter from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America. In 1962, Fr. Dennis Latto became our parish’s first regularly assigned pastor. One year later, groundbreaking ceremonies and blessing of the site took place with Bishop Meletios officiating. On November 15, 1964 the first Divine Liturgy was celebrated in the new church. The Church of Saints Peter and Paul was consecrated on November 19, 1978 by Archbishop Iakovos.
