Listed as one of the “Eleven Churches Not to Miss if  You Visit Chicago,” St. Mary of the Lakewas at the top of my list for what I hope will be a traditional journey to spectacular churches at Christmastime.

Last year I visited Holy Trinity,  St. John Cantius and St. Hedwig.

The parish is diverse and the 10:30 an English mass I attended was meaningful with lovely Christmas music. They also offer masses in Spanish.

The church was designed by Henry Schlacks, who also designed St. Paul’s  in Pilsen.
