The architecture of the cathedral is very beautiful, both inside and out. There are many Mass times to choose from as well. There are any number of people there who can answer questions about the art and environment and history of the cathedral. It's worth seeing this masterpiece. It's an active parish and is due reverence once inside.

While visiting Chicago, attended services, heard an inspiring sermon, and listened to an excellent choir. Well worth seeing and participating.

This is great for the spiritual renewal you will need for the busy pace of the great city. The architecture is exceptional and the energy so renewing! Location is great - get renewed and back to shopping or lunch!

I got this opportunity to visit this beautiful church on a Sunday evening mass. First reaction was WOW !! The place is so beautiful inside you can't describe in words (you need to be poet). After a long time I found a place where I can peacefully talk to almighty. The prayers and songs were forcing me to recite along... More

They had many Mass times and were well set up for the crowds (que lines outside). Go very early to get seats for High Holy Days.

We attend mass at Holy Name annually during our January Chicago shopping trip. The woodwork on the ceiling is absolutely beautiful. Mass is always well attended, which warms my heart in this day in age. The only negative is that the singing/cantor is very hard to follow - never loud enough.

It had been years since I was in this cathedral but I was there recently for a wedding and rediscovered how beautiful it is. It's not ornate or lavish. It's simple, practical elegance.

The Church service was wonderful. The singing and organ playing was so professional. It made me want to participate in the singing!

This was a grand church which brought back thoughts of days gone by. The Mass(Sunday, 12:30) was a high mass with all the pomp and circumstance that you would expect. There was a diverse population including many young people. The Deacon and the priest were welcoming.
