  • This is my faith community so I might be biased but this one of the most wonderful faith communities I have ever been a part of. There is a really progressive feel to it. The staff is wonderful. They so some wonderful events and everyone is really welcoming. If you have just moved to Chicago it is definately a place to checkout.
  • The Easter Vigil on 3-31-18 was amazing. I received my first Holy Communion and Confirmation here with their RCIA program at this Easter Vigil. Thank you
  • Gathering for the Community Renewal Society Martin Luther King Jr. Faith in Action Assembly. An amazing group of over 2000 saints for justice. Thank you to Old St. Patrick's Church for your warm welcome.
  • not a bad church aesthetically, and it'll get the job done if you find yourself needing to go to mass Sunday evening, but I find the "hootenanny" style silly and best left to the Protestants.
  • A beautiful place. Great architecture... And people.
