Located on Chicago's West Side, this beautiful cathedral is a registered landmark. It has a new website that is well worth visiting. There you can read about its amazing history and the people who lovingly built this a beautiful House of Worship and gathering center. 
 An interesting shot

If anyone has ever gone to Kiev, Ukraine (or lives there) then they will immediately see that this cathedral in Chicago was lovingly modeled after the 11th c St. Sophia's Cathedral located in Kiev.
