Doors Open Milwaukee -- Churches

After visiting the Milwaukee Ballet building R and I went on over to the Basilica of St. Josaphat on the south side.
The building was humungous.
The photos really don't do it justice. 
It was a church that reminded us very much of the ones we would visit in Latin America. The ceiling was something that I could stare at all day long and those stained glass windows...

We even tried to sneak up to the balcony -- sadly it was locked. 

Later on that day we went to The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. 
The inside was much more modern as they had just remodeled a few years ago. There is also an impressive dual pipe organ. 

The thing that is the most amazing about the Cathedral is that they reach out to the community a whole lot. Every Wednesday at noon there is a music concert for the public. It's at lunch hour so that someone working on downtown can head on over for their lunch break.
They also provide over 200 meals a day to the needy.
The church is not very big, but it reflects the name. Reaching out to the people in the community to help them and serve the Lord.
