Slice of Life: Holy Family Scavenger Hunt

In most cases, if you are looking for an ionic capital, you’d look UP.  Unless you’re roaming around the campus of Holy Family church in Chicago.  We found four of them lying on the ground, marking entrances and exits from a parking lot.

Father Boland explained it to us: “The former president of St. Ignatius is a scavenger of sorts. Over the years he goes to demolition sites to pick up pieces of old buildings. These capitols come from an old bank in Chicago. The campus has many remnants of great old Chicago buildings. Its worth taking a tour over there. “
