The Season of Giving

During the Christmas Season, please keep your Basilica on the list of charities that you will contribute to. Our church is built upon generations of faith, which is why we all have a shared responsibility to preserve it. Every gift has a direct impact on our operations, ensuring that our doors can remain open 7 days a week and continue the ongoing maintenance that is required of such a large and historic building. Recently Basilica Rector, Very Rev. Joseph Tizio, C.Ss.R. shared some thoughts on why it’s important that you take action.
