Friends and Family

Alumni/ae and Friends


Brent House has a large community of alumni/ae and other friends of Brent House. Anyone is welcome attend Brent House when they are in the Chicago area and we frequently have alumni/ae come back to share the Eucharist or to attend another event with us. Likewise faculty, our neighbors in Hyde Park, former parents, and others from around the diocese often drop in and are always welcome.

There is also an alumni group on Facebook.

We also rely on our alumni/ae and friends for their financial support to keep Brent House running.

Parents and Family


The parent and families of students who attend Brent House support us in many ways. When they are in Chicago, they are always welcome to come to Sunday Services or another event, and may wish to consider staying in the guest room. From afar, parents can stay up-to-date by receiving our weekly email update or our semiannual newsletters, by contributing financially, and by being supportive of their children as they begin to forge their own individual identity in the church.

Our chaplain is always happy to communicate with parents by email ( or by phone (773-947-8744).
