Overview

Holy Name is best known to Chicagoans as the main church of the Chicago Catholic Archdiocese. It is a gorgeous example of Gothic style architecture, inside and out. In 1969, the interior was substantially redesigned and altered, but it retains its inspiring elegance. Because of its location and fame, this church is one of the busiest parishes in the city, catering to business people, tourists and city residents. View the official hat of every archbishop who has served here. It has been tradition here since the 13th century to suspend the cardinal's hat from the ceiling upon his death.
