New Member Information

COVID-19 has put the New Member Brunch events we used to host in-person at The Basilica on hold, in an abundance of caution. Fr. Bauer and department directors are pleased to offer some of the information normally shared at that brunch via this informational video. Though it was created to welcome newer parish members to The Basilica, we hope the invitation to engage with our various ministries is of interest to a broader audience as well.

Unfortunately we are experiencing a connection issue with the internet today and are unable to stream today's Mass. We apologize and hope to have this corrected tomorrow.

Recordings of previous Masses are avaialable at
