  • A church that is worth visiting only if you pass through the area, much more interesting on the outside than inside, which turns out to be very bare compared to our Catholic-European canons

  • Stunning architecture, peaceful retreat from the noisy, busy streets of Chicago. Beautiful place to meet Jesus. Even if it's after hours, explore a little. If people are there, they might let you come in. Be respectful and it might be one of the unexpected treasures you encounter while in Chicago. It was for us.
  • Offers more than you can see from the outside and beyond the small courtyard. At the back side, they also built a modern wing attached to the old church. Very cool.
