About the Event
Woven into the masterpieces of Chicago history are three victories of beauty and stability. One was very nearly destroyed in a 2016 fire and comes with at least one miracle story, the saving grace of an iconic image of a little child. Another is a Tudor Gothic, fitted with alabaster statues, German woodworking and Irish stained glass. It is not out-done by the third that rises as if sliced from the side of a mountain a- but as an old-world Gothic with new world purpose. It is currently being restored! Come see the vision renewed and the workmanship in the (re)making. Come explore them with an enjoyable, knowledgeable guide.
Meet At: Shrine of Christ the King, 640 S Woodlawn Ave. Chicago IL 60637
