About the Event

Catholic Church Tour Field Trip guides incorporate the historical underpinnings of local neighborhood communities, artistic methods of signs and symbols, architectural instruction and time for individual exploration. Unlike simulated or virtual reality, our guided field trips bring the physical and spiritual aspects of the transcendent into a cohesive communal experience.

Today’s tour will keep us moving as we explore four of the most noble places of worship.  We will take in St Hedwig, the Hidden Gem of Bucktown.  Your guide will also bring you through a Holy Trinity Polish Mission, founded in 1872 and known for its exquisitely painted ceilings, brightly gilded pilasters and crypt reliquaries. Two other north-side churches, St John Cantius, and St Stanislaw Kostka, aka the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy, have long history, notable beauty. All are popular because they retain undeniable grace and majesty.

Meet At: St John Cantius, 825 N. Carpenter Street.  The guided tour begins after an 8:30 a.m. Mass (all are welcome) at approximately 9:00 a.m.

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!
