End could be near for historic Pilsen church

The Archdiocese of Chicago is in “advanced discussions” with several potential buyers for a century-old church in Pilsen. Masses will end next month at St. Adalbert Church, 1650 West 17th Street, and an archdiocese spokesperson said any potential sale will likely involve some redevelopment of the property. The church was relisted in September after a previous deal with Chicago Music Academy stalled. Another Pilsen church that recently closed, St. Ann, is being converted into residential units.
