Concelebrating Requests

If you are a priest interested in concelebrating or saying a mass in the Basilica, please provide in advance a Letter of Good Standing from your bishop or superior. The Archdiocese of Baltimore requires this letter include the date of your visit. For questions, please contact the Worship Coordinator at 301-447-7058.

Sacraments

As a Minor Basilica, we are not associated with a specific parish. As a result, there are some sacraments that we cannot perform for visitors or the general public, like Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals.
