Holy Week and Easter Registration

Celebrating the Paschal Mystery

Pre-register for in-person attendance during Holy Week and Easter

The Basilica is our spiritual home- a place of welcome. We want each person who enters The Basilica to feel safe. The Basilica follows all state health and safety guidelines. 

Please read the full protocol before registering. Your cooperation in these extraordinary times embodies our vision to seek the well-being of our community. Archbishop Hebda's dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass continues. If you have questions or cannot register online, please contact our Director of Engagement via email or at 612.317.3417.


  • Anyone with a temperature 100°F or more or who answers 'yes' to our brief health screening questions cannot enter.
  • For liturgies with 175 or more pre-registered guests, we will assign seats to ensure social distancing. 
  • Be sure to bring a face mask, which needs to be worn over your nose and mouth at all times at The Basilica.


Please consider refraining from in-person attendance if you:

1.) Experienced or have been near someone who experienced: cough, cold, flu, fever of 100°F +, shortness of breath, sore throat, or a loss of taste or smell.
2.) Have underlying medical conditions, including but not limited to: asthma, diabetes, heart condition, pregnancy, severe obesity, a compromised immune system, diseases of the lungs, kidneys, or liver, or are receiving cancer treatment.
3.) Live in a nursing home, long-term care or congregant living facility.
4.) Are age 65 or over, particularly if unvaccinated.

Anyone concerned with interpersonal proximity, even with social distancing, should prayerful consider the prudence of attending in-person liturgies.
