Founded in 1892, Holy Trinity Cathedral is home to the oldest Orthodox parish in Chicago. This beautiful church was designed by the famous American architect, Louis Sullivan. It was consecrated by St. Tikhon of Moscow in 1903 and built under the leadership of St. John Kochurov of Chicago, who was martyred in the Bolshevik Revolution. Located in the heart of Chicago’s historic Ukrainian Village-Wicker Park neighborhood, Holy Trinity has been a vital part of the community for more than a century. It’s an official City of Chicago Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it’s the center of religious life for many Orthodox faithful and their families. We are dedicated to serving the people of God in the spirit of Christian love, and we invite you to come and worship with us whenever you are in the Ukrainian Village-Wicker Park area. Tours are available by appointment and on Saturdays as indicated on the website, or worship with us during services.

Human scale very cute and it seams very genuine. What I mean it feels like it was designed and built by Ukrainians ( not a building but chased by them and then adjust to their needs as with other churches in the neighborhood

Although the tour of the Ukrainian Village is not as good as it is made out to be, the churches are the definite highlight. This is perhaps the nicest of the big three as it is tucked away on back streets and feels more organic...More

A lovely church - a lot smaller than I had imagined. We came in during a service. Singing was beautiful.

Ukrainian Village. Famous architect designed this. Very small but ornate inside. Construction was partially funded by the Czarist of Russia. We got a little "tour" from a parishioner.
