A Roman Catholic church of the Archdiocese of Chicago, it was built in 1919 (one source says 1922) and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. It was designed by Barry Byrne, who was a student of Frank Lloyd Wright and incorporated elements from Wright's Prairie School of design and from the modernist movement. It was built during a period of liturgical renewal that was just reaching the U.S. 
The church campus is also home to the Pre-Novitiate of the Carmelites of the Province of the Most Pure Heart of Mary.
The church contains a set of the Stations of the Cross and a bronze Pieta designed by sculptor Alfeo Faggi.
