Commemorative Paver Program
Courtyard Commemorative Pavers
We are a thriving parish community of over 6,000 households and we welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the world in for worship and to explore our architecture every year.
The Cathedral’s courtyard is a place for gathering, prayerful reflection, and tranquility in the middle of Chicago’s bustling River North community. Our courtyard features a private Marian Shrine where the faithful say prayers to the Blessed Virgin and leave offerings of flowers. In addition to the shrine, lush greenery outlines the courtyard space and a meditation garden welcomes quiet thoughts in an urban environment.
Commemorate a special event, honor a loved one, or celebrate a family member or friend’s wedding, baptism, anniversary or other milestone by reserving a paver in the Cathedral’s courtyard.
All net proceeds benefit the operations at Holy Name Cathedral.
