To limit the number of visitors at a time in the Basilica, we ask that you use the entrance at the John Paul II Pavilion accessed from the 7th Street parking lot. Hours are currently limited to 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, Monday through Saturday. We are excited to offer you a new Audio Tour with fascinating history narrated by Milwaukee historian John Gurda! Sundays the Basilica will only be open for three scheduled Masses at 8:00 am, 10:00 am and 12:00 pm, Saturday at 4:30 pm. Daily morning Mass is Monday through Friday at 7:00 am and on Saturday mornings at 8:00 am with confessions following Mass. Please click here for guidelines for attending Mass during the pandemic.
