Many years ago the pastor at the time at my St. Anthony’s parish, Father Larry Dulek described the south side of Milwaukee skyline as a “City of Steeples.” His description was spot on.
St. Josaphat’s Basilica
Our Lady of Guadalupe
I did a double take this week. Make that a triple take.
All my life the domes on top of St. Stanislaus have been a constant. They’ve always been there (the twin spires have actually towered over Mitchell Street since 1872).
The domes have been plucked like the caps off ketchup bottles. How did I miss this?
It’s all part of major renovations going on at that beautiful church. The tarnished gold leaf will be replaced with copper.
