Shrine of Christ the King at Christmas, 2007

For Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at the historical landmark Shrine of Christ the King in Chicago, Solemn High Masses were held in the church. The church building was previously "gutted" and unusable, but volunteers cleaned and prepared it for use to accommodate the growing attendance, as the basement chapel in the rectory has been out-grown.

A temporary painted high altar brings the sanctuary to life and will be in place until funds are aquired to restore the church. The statue of the Divine Infant King, which will be the centerpiece of a future high altar, will be crowned by His Eminence Francis Cardinal George at a Solemn High Mass on December 29, 2007.
