  • We went to the 12:30 Sunday service. I am a life-long Catholic but had never been to the Extraordinary Form of the Mass (Tridentine High Mass in Latin). Basically, this is how mass was in my parent's ...  read more »
  • Great worship space inspiring for Catholic and non Catholic alike. A Chicago landmark not to be missed. 
  • We drive from the Northwest suburbs every Sunday to attend mass here. The first time I proposed to do the trip my husband balked at the thought but changed his mind from the moment we attended our first mass at St John Cantius. The breathtaking beauty of the place and truly angelic sacred music are only surpassed by the deep reverence and prayerful Latin and NO services. Also, confessions are offered before the masses O Sunday, something few Catholic parishes offer nowadays!! No watered down catholicism here. We are blessed to have found this wonderful place to worship God as He must.
  • My husband son and his friend from home went to the 9:00 AM mass after moving my son in to the neighborhood. After mass we walked the church grounds and met the pastor Phillip. He met us by chance in the outside garden and casually strolled the church grounds and shared the history of St. John's with us. What a wonderful welcome my son had to the new neighborhood. It was very welcoming and felt like home.
  • In one word-REVERENCE! The Masses are beautiful, spiritually uplifting, and the music makes you feel like you're the gates of Heaven themselves. After , the Mass, mammy of the priests are there to greet you and answer questions. Being there is a wonderful faith experience.
  • Is a beautiful and inspiring worship space. Rivals European Catholic Churches with its art and architecture.
  • Beautiful church ⛪ great people and most of all the Traditional Latin Mass made me feel closer to the Agnus Dei...Deo Gracias.
