The Chicago Loop Synagogue was founded in 1929 to serve the religious needs of those whose professional or business activities brought them to Chicago's downtown business district. Since then, it has grown to become the city's central synagogue. It is, in a very real sense, the symbol of the Jewish religious presence in Chicago. Citywide events of religious and other significance to the Jewish community are conducted in the Synagogue, and civic and religious leaders of other faiths look to the Chicago Loop Synagogue as a source of guidance and information concerning Judaism and Chicago's Jews.
First United Methodist Church at the Chicago Temple is a congregation with a glorious past, a vibrant present and a promising future. It is the oldest church in Chicago! It was founded by Methodist circuit riders in 1831, six years before the City of Chicago was incorporated. For more than 175-years, the congregation has gathered for worship in five buildings. Its first services were held in the homes of its members. But in 1834 the growing congregation built a log cabin north of the Chicago River.
Holy Trinity had its beginning when a small community was established in 1882 as St. Vladimir’s. The first services were held in a house on North Noble Street and later in a rented house on Racine (then Centre) Street near Madison Street. The community then consisted of a small group of Orthodox immigrants from Carpatho-Russia and Galicia.
That’s the kind of place LaSalle Street Church seeks to be. Step into a worship service on a Sunday morning and you will most likely notice some differences right away. Within the beautiful and intimate Gothic Revival style sanctuary, you will see young and old, rich and poor, conservative and liberal. You’ll be able to join in singing not just “traditional church hymns” but music from faith communities from all over the world—from Africa to South America, and everywhere in between. You will experience musical instruments that run the gamut from piano to guitar, classical violin to African drums.
Since its founding by Irish immigrants on Easter morning in 1846, Old St. Patrick’s has been interwoven in the life and history of the City of Chicago. Founded in 1846 as the first English-speaking parish in the city, the current church building was designed in a Romanesque style by two of Chicago’s earliest practicing architects Augustus Bauer and Asher Carter. The cornerstone was laid on May 23, 1853, and the building was dedicated on Christmas Day, 1856.
The Parish of Our Lady of Sorrows was founded in 1874 by three Servants of Mary (Servites): Fathers Austin Morini and
Andrew Venturi, and Brother Joseph Camera. The Bishop of Chicago, Right Reverend Thomas Foley, enthusiastically
approved their dream of a sanctuary where the Blessed Virgin could comfort her people and honor her Divine Son.
St. Clement Catholic Church was built in 1917-1918 in Lincoln Park in Chicago. The architect was Thomas P. Barnett of the St. Louis firm of Barnett, Haynes & Barnett.

The Episcopal Church in the United States of America grew out of the Church of England in the colonies after the American Revolution. Today, it is a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion whose spiritual leader is the Archbishop of Canterbury and while it remains autonomous of the Church of England, this affiliation unites the Episcopal Church with Anglican congregations in 160 countries worldwide.
Founded by Polish immigrants at the end of the nineteenth century, the parish today represents a broad cross-section of every ethnic, socio-economic and age group. Of all the “Polish cathedral” style churches in Chicago, St. John Cantius stands closest to downtown. Its imposing tower rising 129 feet is readily seen from the nearby Kennedy Expressway, while the majestic church façade overlooks the River North neighborhood.
The Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago was founded in February 1871 when the congregations of Westminster Presbyterian Church and North Presbyterian Church merged.
