The St. Josaphat Basilica is one of two basilicas in Wisconsin and, I’d argue, the most beautiful church in the state. Made in the 1800’s by Polish immigrants as a “smaller version” of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, this church dripping with artistic and sacred beauty is in need of serious repairs. They are trying to raise $7.5m total to complete what needs to be done. They are accepting donations here and have already raised $2m.
The diocese is putting up some really cool bus stop advertisements around downtown Milwaukee to draw attention to their cause, it’s nice to see an injection of the sacred into normally secular surroundings!
