Incredible wooden arch architecture on the ceilings. Very intricate and beautiful. I walked in just for a look and it was so peaceful and serene that I ended up staying for Lenten mass.

Visited for Sunday morning Mass, greeted by an excellent professional choir (my wife and I are both singers, and very fussy regarding church music). The choir shared traditional Catholic music (real traditional stuff from centuries ago), along with a contemporary hymn, and some new compositions. Add to that a no-frills Catholic liturgy with good preaching, and we felt very blessed... More

Went to Sun 11am Mass. The cathedral is beautiful. An interesting mix of typical cathedral + some modern (alter, tabernacle and crucifix). Music was traditional hymns (pipe organ+ choir).

Every time we travel to Chicago we attend mass on Saturday. They offer 2 masses on Saturday to make it so easy to attend.

I love stopping by Holy Name Cathedral for a little quiet time....it is open all day, unlike some local churches. A break from shopping, sightseeing, or work, it is an oasis!

Beautiful and historic Catholic cathedral that has a "tree of life" motif as seen in the bronze entry doors as well as the ceiling and altar inside. Although flash is prohibited, if you have a good enough CMOS sensor or higher ISO, you may be able to take decent enough pictures inside.

The Cathedral was decorated beautifully for the holidays. There is a great variety of masses to choose from each daily if you want to attend mass. You can also just go to Holy Name Cathedral to pray. or light a candle.
