The Peace and Tranquility you feel when entering the church is astounding. I often go before a Doctor's appointment at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and it's relaxing and passionate all at the same time. I feel inner peace in my heart, soul, and mind while in the mist of the beautiful art.

You will not regret visiting this beautiful church, even if you are not going to pray. The interior is ornate in a subtle way and the outside is neogothic and interesting.

A beautiful structure inside and out. Mass is usually packed and the choir is superb. Parking is generally sparse so try public transportation.

Holy Name Cathedral is Chicago's answer to Saint Patrick's Cathedral in New York City. All the beauty you would expect in a world class cathedral.

We are visiting from Los Angeles and wanted a special place to attend Palm Sunday services. We found it at Holy Name Cathedral! We wish our church were as inspiring. From the touching and beautiful service, to the choir and beautiful architecture, to the most welcoming parishioners - this was a memorable experience. We will always treasure this heartfelt service.

If you are into religious buildings, this is a good one. Considered Chicago's premier catholic church, it will satisfy your needs for ornate, historical and whatever else you may get from visiting a cathedral. Certainly doesn't hold a candle to most European versions, but good indeed.

The Holy Name Cathedral was an unexpected blessing within walking distance of the Sheraton Hotel and just off the Magnificent Mile. The church is rich in history and the gothic structure itself is amazing--especially the all wood ceiling. I sat through rehearsals on a saturday after mass and my mood was lifted by Bach, sang by expert cantors. I returned... More

Loved the choice of mass times on Sunday. The choir was the best I have heard. Felt very welcome in a church away from home. Beautiful cathedral close to downtown.
