Beautiful Church.

A lot of history at this Cathedral where mobster Jaime Weiss was gunned down by Al Capone's men. There is still a bullet hole in the wall that has been left there - great history.

Holy Name Cathedral is absolutely gorgeous with statues, art, architecture, and spiritual relevance that makes it a must-see for people of any faith, especially Catholics. Open to all people and costs nothing to experience this magnificent structure.

This is a very peaceful place to visit and to worship. When first entering and you look up to the art work on the ceiling is is just amazing.

Quiet peace is found in the Cathedral amongst the beautiful splendor of stained Windows! Being able to find tranquility in the frantic city of Chicago is a treasure to behold.

When in Chicago we always go to Mass here. When possible try to go when the full choir is singing ( 11 AM I think )

My wife and I attended Mass at this absolutely lovely Catholic Cathedral. The Church opened in 1874. We were staying Downtown and took the CTA red line / Howard train to Chicago / State. Check their website for further information.

Holy Name Cathedral is in the heart of the Gold Coast and one of Chicago's preeminent churches. Right on State & Superior, steps from Michigan Avenue. Nice stop to make to either pray, gather your thoughts or just marvel at the churches architecture.

A short distance from downtown, which made it great for us. After mass, we were able to easy walk to a restaurant.
