Holy Door Closure During Construction

Due to the construction work re-pointing the bell towers the Holy Door will be closed weekdays until September 16th.  The Holy Door will be open on the weekends during this time.

The construction work will remove the decaying mortar between stones and replace it with new mortar, ensuring the integrity of the bell towers and the historic bells within them.

Thank you to the Basilica Landmark for funding the preservation and restoration of our historic building.
