Our Mission: the preservation, restoration and enhancement of the Basilica of St. Josaphat as an historical landmark, center of spirituality, and community asset for Milwaukee, Wisconsin and our nation.

The Basilica of St. Josaphat, located in the historic Lincoln Village of Milwaukee, is a Franciscan parish which has a captivating story of faith, historical significance and unmatched beauty.

Built by Polish Immigrants and using salvaged materials from the U.S. Post Office and Custom House federal building from Chicago, it is often referred to as “an ignored wonder of the world”.

Since 1991, The St. Josaphat Basilica Foundation and its Board of Directors have provided the guidance, funding, and leadership for all preservation, restoration or enhancement work for the Basilica.

We welcome you to the Basilica of St. Josaphat!
