Chicago Churches Tour

The lovely city of Chicago wll again host the Great Chicago Places and Spaces tour this year May 19-21. Our friend Suzanne Morgan wil lead

"Icons & Crosses: The Christian Orthodox Church (trolley, 32) Suzanne Morgan, Chicago Center for Religious Architecture Rich in symbols and ritual, candles and icons, this tour will emphasize the unique features of architecture and worship. This tour will feature Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Christ the Savior Orthodox Church and Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral"

Yes, that is Louis Sullivan's Cathedral, and yes it is still standing while Pilgrim Baptist tragically burned down.

Then why not try

"Three Sacred Spaces (bus, 52) Ward Miller, Project Architect and Richard Seidel, Historiographer, Diocese Chicago Experience Louis Sullivan's Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral, St. James Cathedral, The Cathedral of the Prairie and Holy Family Church. Bring your own lunch and comfortable shoes!"

The doors will be open. Please donate generously to the Church of your choice while you visit, and enjoy a Sacred Chicago.

Thanks for your comments on my blog, Wilmette. Many years ago the Trib had an excellent piece in their Sunday magazine, called something like "Churches of the Kennedy Expressway." It would be fun to see that here. If you ever decide to do that will you please leave a comment on my blog? I would love to see that!
