  • A word from your Pastor

    Each day I make a holy hour in the friary chapel before the Blessed Sacrament, holding all the parishioners of the Basilica in my heart and prayers. God makes all things work for the good for those who love Him. May this time away from the Mass and the Sacraments serve to bring each of you closer to the Lord and hungering for Him all the more. Do not be afraid and do not lose heart. Draw close to the Lord and he will draw close to you!
    - Fr. Lawrence
