Safely Celebrating Mass
Welcoming you back to The Basilica
The Basilica is our spiritual home-a place of welcome. We want each person who enters The Basilica to feel safe. We are open now for weekday noon Mass on a restricted basis starting. The Basilica will follow all state health and safety guidelines.
Beginning Sunday, August 2, The Basilica will be open for public Mass at 11:30am. Initially, we will limit the number of attendees to 50.
You will see new practices and policies when you return. The policies will continue to change as we monitor the official guidelines. Please review all of the protocols on the registration form.
