Entering the Church

St. James of the Sag Church
Lemont, Illinois

Built in 1833, the oldest church in the Chicago Archdiocese has been around since the building of the Illinois and Michigan Canal, through the rise of the railroads, to modern barge traffic along the Calumet Sag Channel.

This cold winter day, a priest and a parishioner head toward the main entrance of the church. I added lots of grain and noise to the photo to make it appear old. Kind of looks like a copy of an old newspaper photo.

Also called Monk's Castle, this church and the cemetery surrounding it is said to be haunted.
