Impressive church with fantastic detail. Very full Mass, but still maintained a calm and quiet atmosphere. Organ is beautiful and loud- can't hear vocalists well in the back and have a hard time keeping up with the music. Overall, good experience for a tourist looking to celebrate Mass.

Beautiful church. Lovely decor and a true sense of peace. Simply passed by with a friend who was showing us some of the City's best sights... He wasn't wrong!

This is where I go to Mass in Chicago and its one of the most beautiful Cathedrals in the USA. There are many services daily and weekend so they will accommodate any schedule.

Holy Name Cathedral was on our list of things to do when we were planning our trip to Chicago. The priest talked about peace and tolerance, and was just what we needed to hear after hustling around all day.

If you are looking for a church to visit while in Chicago, stop by any day to see this magnificent structure! Mass was very meaningful with a celebrant who had a special message. Beautiful architecture!!

Great Catholic church walking distance from tourist district. A visit to a mass will not be a let down. Gives everyone a chance at some solem/spiritual time away from every day chaos.

From the outside the church does not look that big but once inside the nave is huge. We were lucky that the inside lights were being checked so it was very bright inside for pictures. Mass is offered 4 times a day. Just a peaceful break off the Mag Mile.
