The Church of the Gesu is a Jesuit-affiliated parish church located in the middle of the Marquette University campus. In keeping with Jesuit tradition, the church maintains a number of outstanding urban outreach programs for Milwaukee's poor. It's also a beautiful building, whose spires (often illuminated at night) add a great deal to the Wisconsin Avenue streetscape. The taller spire stands 180 feet high.

The original architects of the Gesu Church were the firm of H.C. Koch, also responsible for the spendid Milwaukee City Hall, located several blocks to the east.

Address: 1145 W. Wisconsin Ave., just to the west of I-43
