Composed of over 700,000 pieces of antique English glass and inspired by Sainte-Chapelle, the stained glass windows of the Saint James Chapel have been called "the crown jewel of Chicago's architecture."
Founded by Chicagoans of many faiths in 1994, Friends of the Windows is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of this spectacular collection of stained glass.
We invite you to join us for weekly tours. Admission is always free.
The Friends of the Windows also hosts free one-hour classical programs performed by professional vocalists and instrumentalists on the Second Saturday of each month at 2 pm (unless otherwise shown): the "Second Saturday at Two" series runs from September through May each year.

The Saint James Chapel is located within the Archbishop Quigley Center (former site of the Archbishop Quigley Preparatory Seminary) at 835 North Rush Street (at Pearson), just one block west of the John Hancock Center.
