This magnificent structure is maintained beautifully. It is open to the public during the day. The best thing about Holy Name is going there for Sunday mass when the choir sings, it's heavenly!

Beautiful old cathedral, opened 1874, very well preserved. There are many architectural elements worth seeing, it's free to enter. Definitely worth at least a quick stop!

A safe and quiet place to look for refuge on cold and hot days in Chicago. The interior is interesting.

Walking into Holy Name is a feeling that I will never forget! It is amazing to see the beautiful architect that went into the making of this Cathedral. We go every time we are in Chicago and I still get goosebumps when I walk in!

Amazing Mass. Beautiful church! The stained glass windows are quite pretty. We went to Mass here and loved the choir, too! Quite an inspirational place, of course.

While only two short blocks off of Michigan Avenue and the wonderful shopping on the Miracle Mile, Holy Name gives one the opportunity to relax, reflect and restore one's sensibilities after a day of buying and touring.

While I have been to the Cathedral many times over the years, this was the first time I had an official guide, a deacon, to tell us all the details about personalities and historic events which occurred there. it means even more to me know.
