Welcome to St. Michael in Old Town

Welcome to the website of historic St. Michael in Old Town. Our beautiful church has a rich history beginning before the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. In the present day, St. Michael’s is a vibrant parish of the Archdiocese of Chicago. We offer a wide range of opportunities for personal enrichment and mutual support in every parishioner’s faith journey. If you like what you see, please consider visiting us or maybe even registering in our parish right now.

In the Redeemer,

Thank You, Harvest Moon Party Coordinators!

Thank you to all who attended the Harvest Moon Party on September 29th at The Galleria Marchetti. Our event was a great success with a $35,000 profit. This was a new event for St. Michael’s and a wonderful entrance into the Fall season. Below is the committee we want to thank for their efforts.

Turkey Drive


We count our blessings everyday. What better way to show our thankfulness than to share with others? The Annual Turkey & Hunger Relief Drive, spearheaded by the Human Concerns & Needs Commission, is the perfect outlet! Be part of making someone's Thanksgiving Dinner happier by making a donation to the purchase of 200 turkeys. The turkeys will be delivered to Santa Maria Addolorata Parish and Blessed Sacrement Youth Center/St. Agatha Parish! 

Turkey Drive envelopes are in the back of church, or please feel free to use a plain envelope marked "Holiday Food Drive", and drop your dontion in the collection basket or at the Parish Office. OR! Even easier: Click here to give a donation directly to the Drive! Every donation helps and your generosity will benefit so many families. Thank you!
