  1. Do you know that church in Chgo. was used then the son gets Baptized on todays episode?

    1. I will try to look for it soon.

    2. I think it is Holy Name on State and Chicago. I am wondering what L track line and its location Cookie and Luscious make the ransom drop.

    3. It looks like Holy Name on State and Chicago but it can't since facing North you don't see Loyola Univ. bldgs.

  2. Yes, I was about to ask the same question. I believe the outside of the church was Holy Name Cathedral, but the inside of the church was a different church. Details would be great. Thanks.
