About Holy Trinity Cathedral
Holy Trinity Cathedral was designed by renowned architect, Louis H. Sullivan. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 and designated an official City of Chicago Landmark in 1979. It's been named one of Chicago's Most Interesting Churches by CBS 2 Chicago and included in Chicago Magazine's Insider's Guide to Ukrainian Village: 15 Great Things to Do.
Our restoration efforts for the 115+ year old cathedral building are ongoing. Recent work has included restoration of the stained glass windows, chandelier and the dome. We would not be able to complete this work without donations from visitors and friends. We express our sincerest gratitude to everyone who has donated to support these efforts.
Future work planned will include the exterior stucco and concrete. LEARN MORE HERE.
The Church has been likened to a great ship bearing men through a violent storm to the safety of the Kingdom of Heaven. The main part of the church building is called the Nave, which comes from the Latin word for ship, navis.
