115-year-old church in Logan Square to close

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A 115-year-old congregation in Logan Square holds its last service this Sunday.

The Episcopal Church of the Advent is closing due to a lack of funding and decreased membership.

It shares a space with Nuestra Señora de las Americas in a historical structure on Logan Boulevard.

At its peak, the LGBT-friendly congregation had hundreds of members, but now only about 20 people remain at its core.
