About the Event

Learn about Aurora, IL,"The City of Lights", as we highlight three beautiful, and richly different, churches. One, on the colloquially named "Pigeon Hill", one near the "Big Woods" and another who's history straddles the famed Fox river.  

Included will be St. Michael's, which was built for worship and kinship by immigrents with Transylvanian origins. It a Byzantine Romanesque structure containing icons and ancient ritual. St Mary's, is not to be missed, with it's meditative Zettler windows - nor is  the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin,  a small stone frontier German built Gothic. 

Your guide will meet out at the first church and stay with you throughout the tour to provide informative context, and thematic continuity.
