  • If you only had a choice of one Mass to go to during the year, the Christmas Midnight Mass at St. John Cantius Church should be the one that you pick. The liturgy is just as beautiful as the church. O...  more »

  • The entire church is gorgeous! Has Latin and vernacular masses. Also has the High Mass in Latin. The choir is absolutely gorgeous when it's singing world-class performances to glorify God in the mass. The church was built in the early 20th century and has spectacular art and architecture maintained by the Canons Regular, an order dedicated to the preservation and revival of beauty. Parking is hard to come by, but definitely worth the trip.
  • Unbelievable beauty, exceptional atmosphere , unforgettable spiritual experience. We wish we live closer and knew about the church earlier. However, despite 1 hr. commute we love to come with our teenage kids when we have a chance.
  • The most open, friendly, and reverent parish in Chicago. Everything done to a T. 8 full time priests, all of the forms of the Mass, and a heavy focus on sacred music (often including professional choirs and an orchestra). It is also one of the most beautiful churches in the country.
  • WARNING! This parish WILL change your spiritual life. Keep coming back if you want to seek God and grow in holiness, for there's no place like Cantius home
  • Built in the old world way.More people in church than it could hold people were outside on the steps.This is the kind of stimulus that children need not violent video games and dysfunctional TV it would be a better world.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
