^^The church uses it for weddings and funerals. The high schoolers meet in there on Sunday mornings. The church is also planning a multi-million dollar renovation of the Hobson Auditorium (as it is called) as well.

What a wonderful tour and thanks for the photos. Our historic churches play a big role in attracting  people to town to attend for services or to make them a part of living in town.

Outstanding pictures as usual.  I sure wish I could have been there.
The tourist would realize at once that he had struck the Land of Flowers - the City Beautiful!

Slow day today and was browsing through this article.

The Church Tour was really cool.  It was so cool actually that I went back and attended my first non-wedding mass at IC.  
The only church I missed was FBC, which I had never been in.  Unfortunately the dang Florida-Bama game was that night so we dipped over to Chicago Pizza to grab a seat.

I believe Ock was on our trolley.  Interesting guy.  Kind of reminded me of my uncle.

Anyway, like I said slow day today.  :)

Go back and see the FBC sanctuary when you have a chance - beautifully designed by Klutho, although poorly "updated" over the years.
