The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii is the oldest continuing Italian-American Roman Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Chicago, located on the west side in the heart of historic “Little Italy”. As a Shrine we offer healing and hope, we ask for mercy and grace, and we preach the love of Jesus Christ to all like family, proudly celebrating our heritage and tradition. Here the restless seeking of the soul finds a safe place to explore its sacred journey.

Christmas Decorations – Thank you!
5 January 2018

Through the Nativity of Our Lord, we welcomed into the world, Jesus, the light of all nations, the light of all generations, the light that overcomes all darkness.

We were able to celebrate our Christmas masses in a wonderfully  decorated and brilliantly illuminated church.

A big ‘Thank you’ to the volunteers who gave up their time and worked so hard to put up and arrange the beautiful decorations.
