What a beautiful cathedral! We missed mass, but went in anyway. The priest was doing a service baptizing babies - and we stayed and listened for a while. He was great! So full of life - I can only imagine that mass would have been a great experience!

The building itself is very beautiful - a must see if you're in the area!

I was amazed with the beautiful art inside the Cathedral. OMG absolutely breathtaking !! . Especially the ceiling, the fantastic work of art is incredible. Definitely worth visiting. I took heaps of photos. The massive organ was also incredible . Will visit the Cathedral again.

The great architecture and design of the cathedral inside and out (especially the inside!) is something worth spending time with.

We attended a mass while vacationing in Chicago, and Holy Name was breathtaking. It's hard to focus on the mass because you're so busy looking at the beauty of this magnificent church. Go early or stay late so you can take it all in.

Stately and peaceful. perhaps not a great European Cathedral but still, quite respectable, a warm escape in winter or cool refuge in summer, good music, you won't forget your visit if you remember to look up and see the reminders of church leaders who have moved on to another realm. You really feel you are in the big city here, just as you do in the bigger stores and when you walking the wide avenues, so why not complete the tourist experience, stop in and visit the church...
