Patrick McCaskey to Speak at St. Peter's in the Loop


Thousands of business people walk right past St. Peter's in downtown Chicago in an early morning fog on their way to work each day. But over a million visitors a year turn into this quiet place--this church chiseled out of a wall of urban rock. It might seem unbelievable in today's religious climate, but St. Peter's draws Catholics from all over Chicago for Confession; Many hop on trains and buses from all over the city and the suburbs to get there. The Franciscans who serve St. Peter's are known for their special kindness and counsel in the Confessional. The church also has a steady stream of events and initiatives that serve its mission.

On September 7, 2011 Chicago Bears Senior Director Patrick McCaskey will be speaking at St. Peter's on Sports and Faith (the subject of his book with Sporting Chance Press) from 12:10-12:50 in St. Clare Auditorium on the lower level of the church. St. Peter's in the Loop is located at 110 West Madison Street.

For further information or questions on any St. Peter’s program, call Carolyn Jarosz, 312-853-2376.
