Thank You for Giving Joyously and Generously…

During this season of giving and thanksgiving we would like to recognize the generosity of our community.  The spirit of The Basilica is strong because so many people believe in it and actively support it with their time and financial contributions.  

As we look ahead to The Basilica’s future, we plan for growing programs, ministries, and outreach.  We plan for all of our members to continue to find support and opportunities to grow spiritually.  We plan for beautiful music, inspiring liturgies and hospitality.  All of this and so much more are possible because of your generosity.  

People give for many reasons: the feeling of making a difference, a sense of Christian responsibility, or the feeling of belonging to a great Catholic community at The Basilica.  Maybe someone you respect asked you to give. Maybe you give to make the world a better place.  But what ever the reason we thank you - The Basilica would not be the same with out your help.

The Icon Festival Turns 20

The Annual Icon Festival began 20 years ago to educate parishioners and the community about the history and significance of Icons. The Greek work "Icon," meaning "image" is used in Christianity to denote a Holy Image.  Icons have profound historical and spiritual significance in the setting of the Orthodox liturgy, in private daily prayer rituals, and in the art world. The Festival provides opportunities to learn more about each other through art and music.
