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 came with family from out East. They had heard about St. Josaphat and wanted to go. This basilica seems to have a European feeling to it. The artwork, stained glass windows, and spacious old world feeling is awe inspiring.

Beautiful church with so much to take in. We were almost overwhelmed with all there is to see in the church. They do have a paper guide which gives you information on the different aspects. Extraordinary!
