Staying Connected to The Basilica

Stay Home. Stay Safe. Stay Connected. 

A message from Fr. John Bauer, Pastor

 

 

Basilica Community,

I hope you and your families are staying well. As you know, we have suspended all public Masses and gatherings; however we are still connecting via conference call, Facebook, and Zoom. 

We are live streaming Mass Monday-Friday at noon and Sundays at 9:30am at facebook.com/BasilicaMpls. The videos are available at here after each Mass.

We are also posting Stations of the Cross and Vespers. Many people have let us know how much they appreciate having access to these Basilica services. 

Please let us know if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions to better serve you. 

We know this is a challenging time financially for everyone. If you are able to continue to support The Basilica financially, we thank you. You may make a gift online at mary.org/donate.

If you find yourself needing financial support, we invite you to connect with our St. Vincent de Paul Ministry

Together, we will get though these challenging times. The threat of the Coronavirus has forced us to acknowledge that we need each other. As a community of faith we need to look after each other, to care for each other, to respond to the needs of each other, and perhaps most importantly to pray for each other.

 

 

Our newest Icon at The Basilica is Mary Untier of Knots. I would like to close today with a prayer to Mary, modeled after a prayer of Pope Francis.

Holy Mother of God and our Mother, to you who untie with a motherly heart the knots in our lives, we pray to you to receive into your hands all those impacted by the Coronavirus. 

Through your intercession and your example deliver us from all evil. Untie the knots that prevent us from being united with God, so that free from sin may find God in all things, may have our hearts placed in him, and my serve God always in our brothers and sisters. Amen.

I was looking for some prayer thoughts today on Friday the 27th, and I listened to the streaming of March 25 prayer and your uplifting words it was just what I needed today. As I have three children that are all in the health field that need some extra prayer.

Thank you, Fr. Bauer for this video, which inspired me to do something new and surprising helpful. Now each time I wash my hands, instead of anxiously counting to 20, I take a deep breath and pray one Hail Mary.
