I have been to many, many cathedrals, churches, and basilicas throughout Europe. There are many that are larger, more ornate, and "grander" than Gesu - but Gesu ranks right up near the top for sheer beauty. It is rather intimate for all its glory, and...More

Such a beautiful Church. When we went to Sunday Mass we got to witness the pageantry of welcoming 14 new Communicants to their First Holy Communion. This was so nice, as visitors. The congregation is full of babies and little kids, so I think this...More

People from over 60 different geographical parishes In and around Milwaukee are registered parishioners at Gesu. We have chosen it because of it's emphasis on social justice, the intelligent homilies offered by its Jesuit priests, and the diversity of its members.

This is a beautiful cathedral with wonderful Stained Glass. A few months back they finished a renovation and the glass is more brilliant. The masses have many Marquette University students and has an urban personality. This is a Jesuit parish as well.

We attended mass at this beautiful gothic style church. It was decorated for Christmas with bright poinsettias and a huge tree. The stained glass windows are spectacular. Many downtown churches have windows darkened by soot over the years, but these were clean and clear and...More

Worth a trip even for the non-Catholic. The interior of the upper church is spectacular. Attend on a sunny day if at all possible so you are able to view the wonderful stained glass windows. Parking is located in the back of the church at...More
