Photos from Basilica of St. Josaphat & St. Patrick's Parish in Kokomo, Indiana

Update in 2014: Check out my updated photos of the Basilica of St. Josaphat

The following photos were submitted by a long-time reader of the blog.

Side Altar dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Basilica of St. Josaphat in Milwaukee.


Left:  This is the full image of the side altar.  Given the devotion Hispanics hold in regard to the Blessed Virgin, especially as Our Lady of Guadalupe, Her image has been enshrined.  This is Christmas time as you can tell by the poinsettias. 

Right: Stained Glass Window at the Basilica of St. Josaphat in Milwaukee.  This is obviously of the Annunciation as depicted by the dove descending upon the Blessed Virgin.

At St. Patrick's Parish in Kokomo, Indiana.  The Church  was renovated a few years ago to go back to a more traditional look.  This is in front of the sanctuary.  Along the middle entrance to the altar, at the front of the Church, middle, and front of the sanctuary, is the beginning of the Breastplate of St. Patrick, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me.  Then we see the word Sanctus, as the priest enters the the area in which the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will take part.  St. Patrick's Parish offers a TLM mass once a month.  Website:


This is above the sanctuary at the Basilica of St. Josaphat.  In the middle, I presume is St. Josaphat himself surrounding with countless angels and saints, including the Blessed Virgin Mary.  The Basilica also has an image of Our Lady of Czesthova; thus it has Polish tendencies in regards to devotions and architecture.
