  • 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 offerings. Welcome to the Basilica Online!

    "Be Doers of the Word"; Exploring the Letter of James
    Presented by Brother Silas Henderson, SDS, DMin

    Every Thursday evening at 6PM in the Undercroft, beginning February 23 and ending March 23. Enjoy soup and conversation followed by a 45 minute session with time for questions.

    The New Testament Letter of James invites Christians to seek "perfection" as they put their faith in Christ into practice through works of charity and justice, becoming "doers of the Word, and not hearers only" (James 1:22). This five-week series led by Salvatorian Brother Silas Henderson, will explore the main themes of this important biblical text in the light of our Lenten journey of discipleship, looking towards the renewal of our baptismal commitment at Easter.
