We attended a mass while vacationing in Chicago, and Holy Name was breathtaking. It's hard to focus on the mass because you're so busy looking at the beauty of this magnificent church. Go early or stay late so you can take it all in.

Stately and peaceful. perhaps not a great European Cathedral but still, quite respectable, a warm escape in winter or cool refuge in summer, good music, you won't forget your visit if you remember to look up and see the reminders of church leaders who have moved on to another realm. You really feel you are in the big city here,... More

Beautiful wood in the cathedral. Stopped in for mass and was pleasantly surprised by the décor. I would recommend popping in to see the cathedral if you have time.

Very normal church, I don't know why it got so high ratings. The one in Minneapolis is much better. The architecture is only so so. I don't recommend.

This cathedral reminded me of some of the cathedrals in Italy. Absolutely beautiful! I have never seen a church of this scale and grandeur in the States.

This is the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Chicago. We often attend Mass here when in the city. It's just a very nice place for church.

We had an opportunity to attend a 9:30AM mass on a Sunday morning while in Chicago. We love to attend mass in new cities/new cathedrals, and this was one of the prettiest without doubt. They have quite a number of weekend masses so finding a time shouldn't be a problem, just check their website nfor times. And, the cathedral is... More
