Rechristened St. Elizabeth, Mother of John (the Baptist) when several North Side parishes were closed, including Most Holy Rosary, St. Engelbert was a German national church.
I usually associate the English Gothic Revival with Presbyterian or Lutheran churches, and it’s interesting to see a Roman Catholic church of this style.
The compressed Gothic arches form the front portal.
“For the greater glory of God, the Most Reverend J(ohn) J(oseph) Glennon, Doctor of Divinity, placed me (the cornerstone) with rites in honor of St. Engelbert on July 18 in the year of our Lord 1926. Reverend A.J. von Braun, pastor.”
Like many of the giant churches scattered around the city, there was originally a much smaller church that was replaced in the late 19th or early 20th centuries. I strongly suspect the sanctuary was on the second floor and either a congregation hall or classrooms were located on the first floor.
