Ab Nicholas, Who Established Nicholas Center, Has Died
Ab Nicholas, a Milwaukee philanthropist and money manager who established the Nicholas Center at St. James Commons, died on August 4 at age 85.
“Ab was a faithful Episcopalian and a deeply charitable man,” said the Rt. Rev. Jeffrey D. Lee, bishop of Chicago. “I will always have profound appreciation for his vision and generosity in making possible the Nicholas Center, as a resource for the diocese and the larger church."

Responding to South Sudan
Clashes between political factions in South Sudan, which erupted in early July, have continued to worsen.

Summer in the City Changes Lives
Summer in the City, St. James Cathedral’s three-week summer enrichment program for at-risk youth, isn’t just great fun and great food. It’s an opportunity for 30-some campers to discover or deepen artistic talents and explore Chicago’s cultural landscape and its diverse neighborhoods in new ways.
“I like it because it gives kids who are in not particularly good neighborhoods a chance to come downtown and see what the city has to offer,” says Lundyn Davis, 19, who grew up in the South Shore neighborhood and attended Summer in the City as a camper before becoming a counselor.
