Old St. Patrick’s Church: A Chicago Renaissance Story

Old St. Patrick’s Church: A Chicago Renaissance Story

Emmy-award winning television reporter and filmmaker Mike Leonard ('The Ride of Our Lives,' 'Catholicism') tells the inside story of how the west Loop’s St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church, known to residents as Old St. Pat's, transformed itself from an empty church in a declining neighborhood into a Chicago hub of worship, culture, social life, education, and service -- revitalizing a then-struggling West Loop. The ongoing vitality and global impact of this landmark church reveal the power of vision and imagination. Told through compelling interviews and cinematography, this documentary is a must-see Chicago story.
