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.

Such a jewel right in Milwaukee. We've visited Holy Hill and wanted to visit, not even being Catholic we were able to enjoy the beauty and feel God's presence. It was well worth the drive and we were able to pop over to a nearby restaurant. A lovely afternoon with my family. :)

It is a beautiful jem in Milwaukee! We have always wanted to visit and it did not let us down. Words do not do it justice, it's a quick must see for anyone in the area. There are also great restaurants nearby.

Beautiful church. This is a must do in Milwaukee if you appreciate great architecture. This is a very historical church and is worth seeing.

The Basilica of Saint Josaphat is a beautiful hidden gem. Many of the materials to build the basilica came from a US Post Office & Customs House in Chicago in the late 1800's. While the outside of the basilica is somewhat plain, the inside is a true treasure. The artwork and stained glass windows are spectacular! A must see in Milwaukee!

I had the pleasure of visiting the Basilica of St. Josaphat on a guided tour and later returned for a concert. This is truly a treasure of Milwaukee! It is beautiful and grand -- a wonderful house of worship!
