Magnificent architecture and a Chicago institution for decades. We could not go inside as it was closed but regardless it is worth seeing up close even if just from the exterior.

I had a three hour layover at Union Station on a Sunday morning, so walked a few blocks to catch Mass at this historical landmark. Not only is the architecture beautiful, but so was the music, and the people friendly. Definitely worth the walk!!

We walked in right after a mass ended and no one said anything to us. I don't think most churches would as we have been in many in Chicago. I am not sure about how late the doors stay open, best thing to do would be to... More
