Chicago Christ the King Shrine to begin masonry work on fire damaged building this week

Happy Easter to all our benefactors, supporters, and friends!

You are cordially invited to view a new video on the Shrine, giving an overview of the direction and progress of the work done so far. This video is part of Landmarks Illinois' "People Saving Places: Stories About the Importance of Place" video series, produced in partnership with Kennedy-King College Media Communications Department.

Thanks to Divine Providence, this mild winter has allowed some important work to be done on the Shrine's tower. On April 12, field inspection was performed on the concrete pours in the bell tower that were done this winter. The fire had caused structural damage to the limestone and concrete lintel as well as the concrete slabs at each level of the tower. The lintels were replaced with new concrete lintels and the floor was spot patched to ensure structural integrity.
The warmer weather of May makes it possible for construction teams to proceed with the work prepared by our team of engineers, construction companies, and architects during the winter season. Construction crews will begin masonry work this week!
