St. Josaphat Church has six-feet thick walls support twin columns that stretch 109 feet high. This dramatic, richly ornamented facade has faced South port Avenue since 1900. The 88-foot barrel-vaulted, coffered ceiling looks down to a gilded mahogany baldachin just above the altar. When it was first constructed, the church served Kashubian Catholics in the community. Today, the neighborhood is much more diverse, and includes Kashubian Americans, Polish Americans, Mexican Americans and a variety of other ethnic groups.
