One of the premier basilicas in the United States is the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. Upkeep and expenses for maintaining this beautiful Church have steadily increased and significant repairs are needed. Next week there will be a national collection to support the Shrine. Envelopes are on the back table of the Church. If you would like to contribute put your donation in the envelope and put it in next week’s regular collection.
