I had attended school nearby and went to Jazz in the Park across the street quite often in the past, but hadn't been inside the building in quite some time. Recently stopped in as we were in the area. It was pleasant, but I was...More

we didn't have chance to walk inside the church, but from the external look, it's beautiful, and there is a park nearby, we have lunch picnic at the park, and can view the church and take picture of it's outlook.

St. John's Cathedral is Milwaukee's Catholic Archdiocese. The church reminds me of entering a church in Rome. It was built in 1852 and all the skilled craftsmanship and beauty of that time is present in this magnificent church; built with cream city brick, towers, huge...More

As a Catholic, I love to visit the cathedrals of the Diocese/Archdiocese of every new city I visit. So, St. John's Cathedral it was. It's a beautiful structure. Though, I was surprised that it was the cathedral, because it is smaller than a lot of...More

Didn't get to go inside, but definitely a pretty view from a drive by outside. It's lit up nicely and seems well maintained.

I walked to see this one morning from my hotel and it is a lovely church from the 1800’s. I was able to see the main church while mass was going on in a smaller side chapel. There is a beautiful baptismal font with baptismal...More

While in town for a family reunion, we attended mass at this spectacular cathedral. The priest and lay clergy were warm, humble and inviting. The cathedral was renovated not that long ago and included a marvelous iron sculpture of a crown of thorns which hovers...More

We were glad we stopped, but it really felt like stepping into an empty church. We really felt like we were intruding. Plus there was someone sleeping in the chairs. I'm glad we stopped, but would not have, had we realized.

The outside of the Cathedral does not represent what is inside. What must have been an amazing interior at one time now looks like a hack job where someone couldn't make up their mind what they wanted. The main crucifix is an artistic horror. The...More

I walked on a pedestrian crosswalk which was painted like the perfect replica of a piano keyboard and entered Cathedral Square Park. Could this be a clue as to what happens in that lovely park in the middle of Milwaukee? Yes, it is home to...More
