This church is certainly worth a visit and for me the highlight was the superb stained glass windows. The windows on each side of the church seem identical and the window at the back of the church is quite beautiful.

A beautiful, old church. Well kept. Very serene and a sense of calm comes over you upon entering. A nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Michigan Ave.

If you are walking on Michigan Avenue near this church, be sure to stop in. It’s open to tourist and definitely worth a few minutes to look at. Beautiful stained glass windows and wonderful stone and wood construction.

Really picturesque and another interesting juxtaposition in this fascinating architectural mix. The climbing plants all over the front really add to the scene - lovely - if you appreciate these kind of things.

What a lovely church. Well worth visiting - it’ll only take 20 minutes out of your day. This church is a little different than Holy Name and St. James in that it has a little courtyard with a fountain and also an art exhibit. Pipe...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
