Want to visit the oldest congregation in the city and the highest chapel in the world? How about seeing a church that won an architectural award or a church serving the working men and women in the loop? What about a church that held its first service the morning of the Great Chicago Fire or one whose bell tower survived the fire? Chicago has always welcomed the faithful of all denominations. Now you can see where Chicagoans worship.
