The Basilica of Saint Mary will be closed for much of Saturday, August 24. The 8:30 am Mass and 9:00 am Confessions this Saturday will be held in the Lyceum Auditorium (313 Duke Street). The church will open at 4:00 pm, which means that the 4:00 pm Confessions and 5:00 pm Vigil Mass will still be held in the church as usual. The parish office in the Lyceum will be open with their normal Saturday hours during this time.
We are currently producing a documentary that will be released next year to coincide with our parish’s 225th anniversary. When the church is closed on Saturday, a crew will be recording footage inside.
Thank you for your cooperation.
