The Basilica of St. Josephat

June 18, 2018

The Basilica of St. Josephat
Some of our residents toured the Basilica of St Josaphat. In the Catholic Church, basilica status is reserved for the largest, most beautiful, and most historically important churches. In 1929, St. Josaphat Church was named the third basilica in the United States. Today there are over sixty in the United States. It is as close as we get to a European Cathedral. It is the largest church in Milwaukee, with a seating capacity of over 1,000 on the main floor, hundreds more can be accommodated in the galleries. It was a real treat for those who attended.
