Visitors tour the new St. Raphael the Archangel Church in Old Mill Creek, Ill., during a Jan. 27 celebration marking completion of the first phase of construction of their new church.
The building includes the facade of the now-demolished St. John of God Church in Chicago and will include the interior of the now-closed St. Peter Canisius Church.
St. Raphael is giving new life to closed churches in the Chicago Archdiocese by recycling their materials.
