This magnificent Temple of God is a monument of faith, erected by Polish immigrants at the close of the nineteenth century. Raised to the dignity of a Minor Basilica by Pope Pius XI, it was the third church to be so honored in the United States. Its beauty reflects both the majesty of God and the devotion of its parishioners.
The marker is located at St. Josaphat Basilica, on the northeast corner of the intersection of West Lincoln Avenue and South 6th Street on West Lincoln Avenue, 601 West Lincoln Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53215.
