Christmas Schedule

As we cautiously plan for Christmas during these extraordinary times, we welcome you to join us in-person or via livestream for Mass.
If you are not able to attend in-person, please know that Archbishop Hebda’s dispensation of the obligation to attend Mass continues.
 
We would like you to be aware of the following changes this Christmas at The Basilica.
 
1) Pre-registration will be required for all Christmas liturgies. Preview the registration form now. The form will open December 1-7.
 
2) For those attending Mass, face masks will be required and we will continue our health and safety protocols including health screening questions at check-in.
 
3) When filling out the attendance request form, please use only one request form per household.
 
4) There will be a limit of 8 registrations per household, and all 8 must live in the same household.
 
5) All Christmas liturgies will have limited attendance to allow for social distancing and while there will be music ensembles at every Mass, there will be limited congregational singing.
 
6) We invite you to consider celebrating a liturgy anytime from Christmas Eve through the Feast of the Holy Family. The four days from December 24th through the 27th offer more opportunities to attend Mass this year. 
 
7) We ask for your patience and prayers during these incredibly challenging times.
