 You're Invited!

The St. Valentine Guild on behalf of the Apostolate of Women invites you and your friends on an Architectural Tour of Chicagoland Churches. This event is intended to enhance your well-being by joining others in appreciating fully the architecture and symbolism found in a few churches in our diocese. This fall the Architectural Church tour heads to Cicero! Cicero, named after the Roman statesman, was developed when the Chicago Burlington and Quincy Railroad was built through the site in 1864. This brought land speculators and farmers after the Civil War.

St. Anthony

St. Mary of Czestochowa

Our Lady, The Mystical Rose

Cost: $110.00   


Our guide for the day will be David Kuhlman A.I.A., ALA, NCARB, President, Jaeger Nickola & Associates located in Park Ridge that specializes in church architecture.
