Although this is a big church the feeling inside is warm and welcoming. Mass times are very convenient for tourists.

Beautiful ceilings, felt very modern inside....sad that there were no facilities to light candles at any of the alters but do understand why.

After running myself ragged for a few hour on my first morning in Chicago, it was nice to take a break inside this beautiful church. I expected it to be a bit larger as it is the seat for the diocese, but that did not take away from its charm or beauty. It is a couple blocks away from the... More

the line for ashes on Ash Wednesday looks long but you will only be there for half hour at the very most. Confession every day.

We attended mass here. The service was good, the parishioners were friendly, and we enjoyed the music. The inside is beautiful and allowed for us to stay after mass to pray while in a very spiritual place.

Were those architects, sculptors, painters, engineers talented? You tell me..oh my goodness. If i remember...it is close to the michigan avenue shopping mile and not far from the area where historical old buildings are to be seen too. After all that walking it was a wonderful rest. Go in!

I was only staying two blocks away from the Cathedral but not having been there on a weekend, I decided to skip a visit. Well, now I wish I hadn't, based on the reviews on TA by those who did. I did get to drive past it on a bus tour describing the gangster-controlled activities of the 1920s and 1930s.... More

I am fascinated by churches, and drag my wife to so many. This one is worth 10 minutes of your time - it's spectacular, and a great place to stop to rest and collect your thoughts. It's located two blocks west of the Magnificent mile, very near the Chicago Tribune Building.
