Tours meet on the stairs at the main entrance of St. Vincent de Paul church on Webster Ave.

In 1897, construction began on an iconic French-Romanesque structure that is said to rival the nest churches in Europe. Tour our church and its historic treasures of art and faith,from the Munich stained glass to the Carrara marble altar and Louis Sullivan relief work. In addition, learn about the history of the parish that gave birth to DePaul University (the nation’s largest Catholic university) and the St. Vincent de Paul Center (the state’s largest day care facility).
