St. Hyacinth Basilica, Chicago

4.8
The Basilica of Saint Hyacinth (Polish: Bazylika Świętego Jacka) is a historic church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, located at 3636 West Wolfram Street in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.


It is a prime example of the so-called "Polish Cathedral style" of churches in both its opulence and grand scale. Along with such monumental religious edifices as St. Mary of the Angels, St. Hedwig's, and St. Wenceslaus, it is one of the many monumental Polish churches visible from the Kennedy Expressway.

  • What a beautiful church, when I first started attending mass at Saint Hyacinth I was amazed at how large the congregation was. I was welcomed with open arms , I never got that type of reception anywhere else.
  • St.Hyacinth Basilica-roman catholic church is beautifully decorated with old biblical stories paintings and statues. I felt there like being in truly religious place with the cult and spirit. It has historic architecture in opposition to newer churches without the modern commercialization .
