Collection for the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
May 14, 2017
This is a one-time collection to be taken up in dioceses around the country to support the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. The Basilica is the nation’s preeminent Marian shrine, and is oftentimes affectionately referred to as America’s Catholic Church. Open 365 days a year, the Basilica is host to nearly one million visitors annually, attracting pilgrims and tourists alike from across the country and around the world. Proceeds from this collection will assist with the completion of the central and final dome in mosaic, the Holy Trinity.
