Saint Gregory the Great Church has served the north side of Chicago since 1904, when the Luxembourgers of the neighborhood petitioned for the creation of a new parish. Since its inception, St. Gregory's has welcomed generations of immigrants and a variety of ethnic groups. Nestled in the exciting and creative neighborhood of Andersonville/Edgewater, St. Gregory's is currently the spiritual home to a remarkably diverse and inclusive parish population. Our parishioners constitute a vibrant and growing Catholic community that worships in one of Chicago's most exquisitely picturesque churches. As St. Gregory’s continues to grow, we look forward to expanding our ministries, organizations, and activities to better serve the mission that Christ has entrusted to us.
We hope you enjoy exploring our website. Better yet, please visit our beautiful church and join us in worship.
