Facts

  • The peak of the front gable supports a 1939 sculpture of St. Martin and the Beggar. In 1949 the statue was coated in gold leaf, and it reflects the sun's light so brightly that pilots use it for navigation into Midway Airport.
  • Originally consecrated in honor of St. Martin of Tours, and reconsecrated in the mid-20th Century to honor St. Martin de Porres.
  • The interior formerly contained some of the finest woodwork in Chicago, but it has all been gutted.
