From the South:
From I-90 going north, it will join with I-94 going through Chicago. Get off at Fullerton exit (ramp is on right) and go East two miles to Cenacle on your right. If you get to Clark stree you have gone 1 block too far.
From the North:
Coming down Tristate tollway take tollway exit to Chicago (the tollway splits and each branch says "To Chicago": You want the one going East (more nearly straight ahead at the split) I. E. keep in Left lanes. Follow it to Edens express way and curve to the right there which is going south. Edens merges with I-90/94 at Chicago and keep going south to Fullerton exit. Ramp is on the right. Go 2 miles to the Cenacle.
From Northwest: on I-90 continue until it merges with I-94 and continue as above.
From Southwest Via I-55. Heading northeast into Chicago you can either merge into I-90/94 heading north and get off at Fullerton and go east, or you can continue to end of I-55 at McCormick Place on the lake and take North Lake shore Drive to Fullerton exit (maybe 2-3 miles). Exit at Fullerton and turn left on Fullerton Parkway a few blocks to Cenacle.
From West I-290 Eisenhower expressway: Follow to its end (called CongressParkway at this point) and turn noth on north bound Lake Shore drive. Continue to Fullerton exit (and see above).
