Saint Clement Church, Chicago

4.8
St. Clement Catholic Church was built in 1917-1918 in Lincoln Park in Chicago. The architect was Thomas P. Barnett of the St. Louis firm of Barnett, Haynes & Barnett.


The church was built in a Byzantine style reminiscent of the church of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. The decoration of the half-dome behind the high altar is a copy of the twelfth- or thirteenth-century mosaic in the apse of the Basilica of San Clemente al Laterano in Rome. The ground to begin building the church was broken on March 19, 1917

  • Beautiful Catholic Church. Congregation and Priest were warm and welcoming to visitors for Sunday Mass.  more »
  • A small St. Louis Cathedral with less mosaics, this fine limestone clad church was designed by the same architects, Barnett, Haynes & Barnett, in 1918. The inside is superb with colored plasters...  more »

  • Though not the largest Catholic church/basilica out there, St. Clement's is still absolutely stunning. The architecture is in stunning Byzantine style. The color schemes, art, and inner structures are simply beautiful and awe-inspiring. Also seemed to have an excellent community with people of all ages, especially young families. There were at least 5 pregnant women in attendance.
  • Well I'm a Catholic, so I'm basically on the team. What Catholic parishes are as different as pizza places. This one is wonderful -- and the outreach stuff they do for people outside the Catholic community is truly impressive.
