South Chicago Churches
     The South Chicago community was the most populous of the Southeast Side communities and served as a port of entry for new immigrants.  As a result it had the largest number and variety of churches in the area.  The churches were important social and cultural institutions for the people they served.  The neighborhood has changed in recent years and white European ethnics have been replaced by Hispanics, mostly Mexicans, and African Americans.  As a result many of the area churches have closed or remain open with new groups in control.
