A little Rusyn church on the prairie

Annunciation Byzantine Catholic Church, in Homer Glen, Ill., traces its roots to Rusyn parishes in Joliet and Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood.

In Chicago, an empty lot was often dubbed a "prairie." But in the wide open spaces of Homer Glen, the church is located on an actual prairie, hence the parish's annual Prairie Fest.

As the flyer at left shows, events are planned for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and you can expect some good Rusyn food, along with some Central European music.
