Registration for Upcoming Masses on Sundays and Other Select Days

Registration for Upcoming Masses on Sundays and Other Select Days

As continued restrictions due to COVID-19 limit the number of attendees to 1,000 persons* per Mass, the Basilica has implemented an advance registration and ticketing system for the following Sundays and select days through the end of the Easter Season.

Please note that registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and there is a 10-person limit per registration.

To register, please click the link for the particular Mass you wish to attend. Please register the correct number of tickets and enter the names of each of those you are registering. Once successfully registered, the ticket/s will be administered for you to print.  Each individual must bring a printed ticket for the particular Mass registered for and must present it for entry into the Basilica.  Electronic copies are acceptable if you are unable to print.

For entry, visitors must enter at the white tent at the Lower Level East Entrance (facing Michigan Avenue, near the Gift Shop side), wear a face covering which always covers both nose and mouth, except as directed for the reception of Holy Communion. In addition, all visitors must have their temperatures scanned via a non-contact infrared thermometer administered by Basilica personnel. For the health, safety, and welfare of all, any visitors exhibiting symptoms of illness and/or a temperature above 100.3 degrees Fahrenheit will not be permitted to enter the Basilica. All visitors must also sanitize their hands with hand sanitizer provided to them. Once inside the Basilica, visitors must maintain a social distance of 6 feet from others, abide by all signage, and follow the direction of Basilica personnel.

With a 1,000-person* limit, we realize that the desire to register for and attend Mass may exceed the maximum allowed. In this regard, the Basilica will livestream its Solemn Mass at 12 noon and its Spanish Mass at 2:30pm each Sunday at www.nationalshrine.org/Mass. We hope that those who are unable to join us in person due to current restrictions will participate with us online. Visitors must arrive at the Basilica no later than 1 hour prior to the scheduled time of Sunday Mass to ensure ample time for entry into the Basilica, as well as escort and seating in the Great Upper Church. Late arrivals cannot be accommodated.

Thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times. We pray for a rapid end to the COVID-19 pandemic and its restrictions so we may welcome all to Mary’s Shrine once again.

*The number of persons allowed to attend Mass is subject to change at any time, per executive order of the Mayor of the District of Columbia.  Should the number of persons allowed per Mass be reduced, ticketholders will be notified as soon as possible as to whether their ticket remains eligible for Mass attendance.
