I always like to visit old churches and see the wonderful stained glass!! It’s across the street from a funeral home, so just them them you’re visiting the church.

A little hard to find, but don't miss it on your trip to Milwaukee. A multi-stories artistic achievement. Absolutely beautiful example of the best in Roman Catholic art and stained glass.

There are a lot of beautiful churches in the area and nationally, I would rate this one at about an average.

In their parking lot, or street parking. We have never had parking issues the many times that we have visited or attended mass.
