FAITH--Celebrate Pentecost!  Four Masses that weekend; grand religious procession with bag pipes; original historic 25-chime system in our tower will play in the background. This is a completely unique family event.  Designated a basilica in 2017, we will host tours of our historic 105 year old Basilica frequently so you can see what the international community and the Pope has recognized as unique and significant with our art and architecture.  This year we are celebrating our stained glass windows!

FAMILY—Introducing the Basilica 5K Run/3K Walk (See attached Registration PDF below)!  Prizes awarded in age-based categories.
