St. John Cantius, operated by the St. John Cannons (SJC), was informally voted as the most beautiful church in America.

It is also known for employing classical liturgical music as part of its liturgies, such as Mozart's Requiem on All Souls Day.

Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe

This site honors Our Lady of Guadalupe, which draws thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of pilgrims during her glorious feast day of December 12.

The Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians

The Basillica of St. Josaphat

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

A sister shrine to Marytown, this basilica is maintained by the Conventual Franciscans. As for its art and architecture - you need to see it to believe it. The Milwaukee Orchestra typically plays Handel's Messiah here every Christmas.​​
