“Peaceful and beautiful”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

I stopped by here just to sit and meditate for a while. I was glad it was open for such things. It gives you the sense that things are under control.

“wonderful experience”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We were lucky enough to be around for Sunday Mass, and took in a wonderful service. The priest was honest and engaging, and delievered a great homily. The organ was amazing and the choir sounded fantastic. Of course, make sure you take the time to check out the bullet hole in the front of the church, its a nice throw back to the gangster days.

“A must see!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This historic Cathedral is very beautiful. A very holy place. They offer Masses throughout the day. A fantastic location and close to many restaurants. Don't miss the Cardinal hats suspended from the ceiling.

“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We were for Easter Sunday service. Had to line up to get in and stood the entire service but it was well worth it. The music was superb and it felt like a real occasion, of course it was Easter Sunday so the Cardinal was there.

“Gangster history”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Great piece of gangster history on this building. Steps that wrap around the cathedral were put there to cover up epic amounts of bullet holes from an Al Capone shooting against a former rival. One of the holes is still visible. Overall beautiful place to visit.
