National Shrine of St. Frances X. Cabrini, Chicago, IL
Open House, Chicago
On Saturday, October 17 & Sunday, October 18, the Shrine, once again, participated in Open House Chicago, a free annual event sponsored by the Chicago Architectural Foundation that invites visitors to experience the architecture of Chicago by participating in self-guided tours in over 150 buildings across Chicago. Over the course of the weekend, over 1200 guests were captivated by the Chapel’s colorful frescoes, Carrera marble, Florentine stained glass, gold mosaics and Romanesque splendor.
The Shrine was delighted to hear that the Chicago Architectural Foundation has chosen them to participate in a Chicago Church Tour featuring 5 north side churches in September of 2016. The tour will be available to the first 200 guests that sign up.
