About the Event

It is so much about about the height, the windows and the way sound travels! ~ Gothic soars and brings the spirit with it.

Join us on a journey through three of the most splendid Gothic Churches in Chicago. Their beauty and structure reflect the reach of the saint for which they are named. Your guide will provide fascinating details about each church, its architecture and its patron.  Old St Michael, St Alphonsus and St Joseph have all made it through the devastation of fires and endured through generations of change. One is small and two are of a grand scale – each is noble. Though they fall within the form of ‘Gothic’, the hand carved wood and marble and churches with their lit-glass are masterpieces unique unto themselves.

Meet At: St. Joseph, 1107 North Orleans St 

See Also:  St Alphonsus, Old St Michael

Transportation is on your own. Free parking in church lots.

Because sacred spaces are not market places, all are welcome to come without cost. Please sign up on our wait list so we might work to accommodate you. Our growing collaboration with organizations and volunteers in several states, ongoing research, preparation and promotion requires funding, so thank you for taking that into consideration!

We run several different tours featuring Gothic churches. Feel free to call Catholic Church Tours if you have any questions or would like to take this tour on another date: 312-869-2286
