The CAC's celebrated Churches by Bus tour returns this year with a blockbuster lineup spanning decades, and architectural styles. The tour explores three historic churches close to the Loop. Old St Patrick's is one of the oldest churches in the city and has seen a rebirth as the neighborhood around it changes. St James Cathedral was heavily damaged in the 1871 fire and was rebuilt in the Arts and Crafts style. And finally, we will visit a "Mystery Church" you won't want to miss. 

  • The bus and some tour locations have steps and are not completely ADA accessible.
  • Ticket price includes entrance to the Chicago Architecture Center on the day of the event. View the CAC's hours.
