Old St Patrick Church is the oldest church in Chicago having survived the Chicago Fire and dates back to 1856. A city landmark and is listed on National Register of Historic Places. Very unique and colorful with Celtic designs based on the Book of Kells. Even with my Irish lineage, I think the church is more reflective of Irish Christian heritage than it is of Christ himself.
