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!!

A true joy to attend the annual Christmas concert @ Old St Patrick's Church. This is our 3rd year of attendance, securing tickets as soon as they are available. The music & soloists are inspirational with spiritual & traditional Christmas music.

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
