Mass & Confession

Mass and Confession

The Basilica at the Shrine is open just about every day of the year. Mass and Confession are available throughout the week.


Monday through Friday and Sunday at 1:30pm.

Please note: There is no 1:30pm Mass on Mass on Sunday, October 7. Instead, Mass will be at 3pm for the annual Pilgrimage for the Sea Services. We welcome everyone to join us for the Pilgrimage, which includes a complimentary dinner after ward. To RSVP for the dinner, please email

Confession and Adoration

Monday through Friday and Sunday at 12:15pm – 1:15pm.
For special observances, please see Join Us in Prayer.

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.
