St. Philomena at 1921 N. Kevdale in Chicago was open for visitors and Eucharistic Adoration on a visit this afternoon. Thanks to Fr. O'Meara for a splendid tour.
Fr. O'Meara explained an unfortunate fire which destroyed the old high altar, leaving the church with a modern altar area, which he charitably relateded as "some have described as not contemporary with the rest of the church" An understatement indeed.
The Eucharistic Adoration Chapel is conveniently open to anyone using a Jewel (Grocery) coupon card, while the Parish School is a matching beauty with the splendid exterior of St. Philomena's Parish.
