  • Beautiful church and a must visit. It’s close to other attractions too such as Adams st (Route 66) and Union Station.

  • Wonderful place for a family mass, especially with eye-rolling teens, because the music is so positive and fun. Always a thoughtful sermon and walk to geek town after!

  • Each time I attend I am enriched and often challenged by the sermons, particularly those by Fr. John Cusick. Indeed, he has written two books which I ordered on Amazon today to get a "fix" when he is not preaching. The entire community supports the liturgy is words and in deeds. The music at the 10 am Sunday Mass draws me in. This is as close to perfection as one can expect on this earth.
  • It was a very nice venue. I've been there before for other events. This time it was a wedding reception. It's an old wharehouse, repurposed. You park, in the rear, enter in the rear, go tour floor in a freight elevator, there was a bar in the elevator. The hall was large, windows all around, with beautiful views of Chicago. A great time was had by all.
