Learn about Aurora, IL,"the City of Lights", as we highlight three beautiful churches near/on "Pigeon Hill". Included will be a Romanian Greek Catholic Church with Transylvanian origins, icons, and ancient ritual (as well as famous Romanian sausage, which will be for sale), St Mary's, with it's meditative Zettler windows, and Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin,  a small stone frontier gothic formerly known as the Big Woods Church. Be present when the Easter Angelus, the Regina Caeli bells ring signaling the original Annunciation.   Please click the read more > below this paragraph to understand our ticketing and for further details.
