The 2021 Lenten Reflection Series Schedule

Lent is a time for all of us to examine our hearts, responding in humility and repentance as we consider the magnitude of Christ’s sacrifice for us. This time of solemn reflection prepares us to celebrate His resurrection on Easter Sunday.

We invite you to join the Basilica this Lenten season as we host our weekly Lenten Reflection Series. The reflections will premiere on YouTube and Facebook at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.
