Join Us Virtually as We Observe Palm Sunday, Holy Week & Easter

We rejoice in the new life and joy that is ours through the Risen Christ as we look ahead to Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter! Though the Basilica is closed to the public at this time, we encourage you to join us virtually via livestream as we meditate on Christ’s sacrifice and celebrate his victory over death. Christ is Risen, Alleluia!
