Shrine of Christ the King exterior

I am sad to report that when I turned on the TV this morning to the news at 4:45am. There was a report that a fire broke out in Chicago’s Shrine of Christ the King. The headquarters of the Institute of Christ the King. 

Please pray for the firefighters and for the Institute.

This is the only thing I could find online as of now from the internet….

“An extra-alarm fire broke out in an 80-year-old church in the Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side Wednesday morning.

There were no reports of injuries at the Shrine of Christ the King Church at 64th Street and Woodlawn Avenue, according to fire officials.

The fire broke out around 6 a.m. and was raised to a 3-11 alarm.

The church, formerly known as St. Gelasius, was built by the Calced Carmelite Order, which established a shrine to St. Thérèse of Lisieux, according to the church’s website.”
