save the shrine


The Coalition to Save the Shrine prevented the demolition of the Shrine of Christ the King, a Chicago Landmark that was threatened following a fire in October 2015. Bringing together preservationists, Shrine faithful, and community members, the Coalition’s campaign to #SaveTheShrine led to the Archdiocese of Chicago’s decision to deed the historic building to an independent Catholic entity, the Institute of Christ the King. The Coalition is now working to raise funds for the Shrine’s restoration and to nourish the community that has formed in support of the Shrine's preservation.
