St Joseph's Church
My fiancé and I moved to Chicago in December and started looking for a catholic church that we would like to get married in. Every Sunday we went to a different church around the downtown area until we finally found what we were looking for...a beautiful church, with a community feel, and amazing priests/sermons. St.Joseph's is definitely a hidden gem!! The following sums up St. Joseph's church:Beautiful! - The outside of this church is very deceiving because of it's modern look. Once you walk through the front doors you will be in awe. Inside a huge beautiful cathedral. It's absolutely gorgeous. Great Priest --- Fr. Larry is amazing! He is very personable, remembers everyone by name, and most importantly delivers great sermons. We take something away from every mass we attend. Amazing Music --- The music is awesome. It's not traditional, boring church music. It's very modern, with a great rhythm and beat. Community Feel --- Fr. Larry is a big reason this church has a sense of community. Once he found out we were new to the area and church, he immediately introduce us to other parishioners and gave us a warm welcome. There are coffee and donuts after the 11 am mass in the gathering area, which allows you to get to know other parishioners. Historic ---- St. Joseph's happens to be one of the oldest churches in Chicago. In the 70's, the front of the church collapsed and was reconstructed with a more modern look, which makes it very deceiving when you drive past it. Once inside, you'll see a beautiful cathedral with such great detail. Free Parking & Easily Accessible ---- Do I have to say more? This is not something that's easy to find in Chicago. St.Joseph's has it own school and parking lot across the street that is free for parishioners on Sundays. Flexible Mass Times --- St.Joseph's also has a sister church called Immaculate Conception a couple blocks away. It is much smaller and is attached to its school. Between the two churches you have a lot of different mass times to pick and choose from. We absolutely love it here, and you will too! We can't wait to get married at St.Joseph's next Spring. If your new to Chicago and looking for a great Catholic church, trust me....this is the one! :)

Giannini, John L
Don't hesitate to check out this counselor. He's 90 years old and still writing books, spinning cartwheels around many years younger. He has so much experience and wisdom and integrity, and love. He is a rare, precious find, a bit eccentric maybe by most people's view, but absolutely brilliant intellectually, hip, empathic like no one I have ever met, and with good boundaries. Sounds too good to be true. No, it's not; he's the real thing. Just a gift beyond belief, and it will never be dull talking to him, very down to earth and he can also go to the depths, breadths or heights. Do yourself a favor.

Couples Counseling Chicago
We needed couples counseling for some issues my wife and I were going through. I cheated on her with a coworker and let's just say things were not good. We decided to go in for some help with figuring things out. We worked with Bill and immediately started to make progress. It came out during therapy that my wife had been cheating too! After this information came out, we started to get at the heart of our issues - trust. It took a lot of hard work but we made REAL progress. Very helpful and likely saved our marriage.

Couples Counseling Chicago
We went for marriage counseling to help us stop the cycle of fights and arguments. After 15 years of marriage we had gotten into some bad patterns and it was getting worse. Our counselor helped us with stress management and learning how to call time outs. We were both skeptical at first but after a few sessions we got into it and also got a lot out of it.
