  • Welcome to the Basilica

    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. Learn about our heritage and check out our parish offerings. Welcome to the Basilica Online!
