The Basilica of St. Josaphat is a ministry of the Conventual Franciscans on the South Side of Milwaukee in Historic Lincoln Village. The Basilica is a Franciscan center for prayer and spirituality, inspiration and beauty. It is home to a vibrant Roman Catholic parish and remains a testament to the faith of the Polish immigrants that created it. We invite you to join us for a visit, a tour, for worship or in prayer.

We saw glowing comments about this church on line and decided to stop on our way out of town. It was a bit out of our way but well worth the detour. Beautiful.

The stained glass windows were some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. The entire church is filled with stunningly detailed artwork.

Felt transported upon entering. The tradesmen who built and who have continued to work on this have truly provided a worship place that is beyond words. Felt so at peace inside this place. Definitely worth a visit -- the craftsmanship alone deserves viewing.

Absolutely beautiful. The stain glass windows will take your breath away. The area isn’t the greatest so be aware of your surroundings.
