My mother - a good Methodist from Rockford, IL - sang at the Chicago Temple in 1942. Imagine my delight when, after attending Sunday morning services there, I spoke with a pastor who remembered the minister from way back when. As architecturally beautiful as the temple itself is, the congregation and ministry staff's welcoming presence had an even greater impact during our visit. I look forward to attending Chicago Temple services whenever I'm in town, and will definitely return for a tour of the building, offered Mon - Sat at 2:00 in the afternoon.

We visited the sky chapel with one of their daily 2pm tours (weekdays). Our host was incredibly friendly and talked about the building and its history in a very interesting way. We could even enjoy the view from a privat balcony, it was great. All other building staff was also very friendly. If you want some peace and a break from sightseeing enjoy sitting at the sanctuary in the ground floor.

At 2pm Monday thru Saturday (and after each Sunday service) they have this tour of the Chapel in the Sky. People from around the world were on the tour. Not to be missed.

Good: Awesome building, wonderful people at the church, the Chapel in the Sky is incredible

Bad: not doing this tour years ago!

Inspired: Eric who gave us the tour
