  • It's not exactly a church, it's the offices of the archdiocese. No longer a school here either. However, the chapel still functional and open Saturday mornings to the public, with what must be the most beautiful stained glass in the midwest. The acoustics here are incredible too. Saw an a capella sacred music group here and it was ethereal.
  • Most beautiful church in Chicago. I love the contrast as there‚Äôs a huge commercial district on Michigan Ave then this gothic looking cathedral.
