Whenever we are in Chicago on a Sunday, we always attend the 10:30am mass. Feels like attending a mass in a church in Europe. Not sure what is going on with the protestors in front of the Cathedral, they have been there every time there is a mass. They don’t harass or bother anyone, but it’s a bit strange.

Visiting and praying inside. Even it did not turn on light, but I can see the big, tall architecture of the cathedral when we visited 3 days in Chicago, IL. It is 1-minute walk from Chicago subway station, and few block to the bus # 146 on N. Michigan Ave.

While my wife was shopping on the Magnificent Mile, I wandered west to see two important Cathedrals in Chicago. I was primarily looking for the St James Episcopal but only a block away was the Catholic cathedral, Holy Name Cathedral. I only got to see the exterior beautiful stone structure surrounded by high-rises.

We came to mass over memorial day weekend, on Saturday evening – – and happen to catch the end of a wedding!
It was gorgeous!!!!
The Cathedral is famous, and has historic architecture. It's simply amazing!

Here's a tip!!! Be sure to arrive early so that you can park conveniently, for FREE, across the street in the parking area for those attending mass. If you arrive early, it is a famous cathedral so several people will be taking photographs and you will fit right in.

Try to sit up near the front, so you can get a good view of the famous RED cardinal "hats" that hang from the ceiling, at the very front of the chapel.

Please press "yes" if you find this helpful, as I wonder if anyone actually reads these.....

Holy Name Cathedral was on one of the walking tours I went on. It is a beautiful downtown Cathedral rich in history and worth a quick stop. I read Al Capone's men gunned down a gangster here and the bullet hole is still visible.

What happened to this Cathedral?? It is so modern that it hurts, although it is beautiful still. My biggest irritation is that you cannot even tell where the tabernacle is, and when you find it, you are amazed by how hideous it is. It is an orb that's part of a bigger sculpture. I'm seen pictures before the renovation and it was much more beautiful.

It has the most gorgeous color stained windows and all the exquisite details all over the architecture. You have to get a peek inside.

My wife and I enjoy attending Mass at Holy Name whenever we are in Chicago. The architecture of the Church is very interesting. We love listening to the choir and the organ.

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.

This church is downtown by the Mag Mile. The organ and ceiling are unique, I’ve been to hundreds of Roman Catholic church’s. People need to explore these beautiful church’s.
