This very old church has several shrines areound the inside of the main building. Every third Saturday at 11 am there's a blessing with a relic of St Peregrine. People travel from very far to receive this blessing.
Amazing! Beautiful! Dr. Frank gave us a personal tour. He was knowledgeable and good natured. Don't need to fly to Europe to see a European style cathedral. You'll learn some interesting Chicago history as well.
