Our Activities


Passes, as practiced in spiritist centers, can be described as a transmission of energy coming directly from the spiritual world. These energies are manipulated by the spiritual benefactors and channeled through the incarnate passgivers, who donate a portion of their own “vital fluid” to assist the recipient. Passes are of great benefit as a restorer of energy and promoter of well-being.

Wednesdays & Saturdays at 11:30 AM (immediately after the Study Groups & Gospel Talks).


kids & youth spiritist education

We aim to spiritually educate children and youth in order to prepare them to face all circumstances and adversities of life.

Classes are held in English every Saturday, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.


Spiritual CPR Project

This is a collective prayer group that meets twice a day, at
7:30 am and 9:00 pm CST, through our Facebook page.

Spiritual CPR refers to the Courage, Patience and Resignation that is always granted to us by Our Creator when asked with trust.

These virtues enable us to go through moments of pain, affliction and suffering without despair, without giving up on the blessing of life and living.

Whether you are experiencing moments of material, emotional or spiritual hardship or are experiencing wellness and want to share your love through the charity of prayer, this group welcomes you.

As Christ taught us, "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Mt 18:20


Fraternal Assistance

This activity is offered by appointment only. It comprises of a conversation with a trained spiritist practitioner who will pass on guidance regarding a pathway to find comfort and strength to deal with life's challenges.

For appointments, please email us at fraternal.assistance@spiritistsocietyofchicago.org


Study groups & talks

We offer weekly study groups, in English and Portuguese, on the various books of the Spiritist codification by Allan Kardec and other spiritist authors, such as Andre Luiz, Emmanuel and Joanna de Angelis.

Our studies are centered on the teachings of Jesus under the light of the spiritist perspective. Together we learn that life is a journey of enlightenment and the present moment is the outcome of past choices as much as the future will be the result of today's choices.

English study groups are held every Saturday, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am & 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Portuguese study groups are held every Wednesday, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am & 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.


Mediumship study group

We currently have two mediumship study groups, focusing in understanding the mechanisms of mediumship and its development according to the spiritist perspective.

These groups meet at 7:30 pm on Mondays (in English) and
8:00 pm on Wednesdays (in Portuguese). Please note that these activities are not open to the general public.
