Description [edit]
The Basilica of St. Josaphat, built between 1897 and 1901, is undoubtedly one of the city's loveliest churches. The neo-Renaissance cruciform (cross-shaped) building is rumored to have the sixth largest dome in the world, larger than that of the Taj Mahal.

The Li'l Friar Gift Shop, 622 W. Lincoln Ave., offers basilica memorabilia along with a selection of religious gifts and items. They can be reached at (414) 902-3521.

Early Music Now presents Anonymous 4: "The Last Noel"

Anonymous 4 revisits one of their first – and one of their most beloved – holiday programs: songs, motets, and carols from British sources illuminate all of the aspects of the Christmas story and its many kindred legends: biblical precursors, Balaam’s prophecy, Gabriel’s greeting, Mary’s virginity, the birth of Jesus, the rising of the star, the angels and the shepherds, the manger and its animals, the three Magi and their gifts.
