“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

Great mass, horrible acoustics, but really moving just as well. There is something about huge, old churches. Go. You will be glad you did.

“Peace and Quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

You can meditate and feel the presence of God, located in a quiet area. I'd like to come back again

Very open and welcoming. We come from a parish of 9,000 families and felt right at home here.

“Beautiful church!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

This is the second oldest church in Chicago (first is Old St. Pat's). The neat thing about the church is that it hasn't been rehabbed, so it still has that old quaint feel. They have a real organ! Air and pipes...Not the electronic sound. Father Jerry Boland is great.

The only downside...No AC in the sanctuary...

“Plain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

Attended an organ concert. Flentrop tracker organ (1989) in rear. Good sound, but lack of electronics makes changing registrations slow and cumbersome. Apse is remarkably plain.
