I had to check out this church due to the gangster history. One of Al Capone's rivals was shot outside this church and you can still faintly see bullets holes - you have to look very close and know where to look. A lot of...More

After 50+ years of visiting Chicago, I had never been to Holy Name Cathedral. I've seen a ton of U.S. cathedrals and was really disappointed. It looked like they did a remodel in the 60s or 70s. I preferred the traditional story-telling stained glass windows...More

It's a Church . . . go on in as long as it is not after visiting hours. I sincerely doubt if they appreciate cameras flashing though. While you're there, light a candle, say a prayer and leave a couple bucks in the box.
