Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary – The Catholic Church is arguably the largest, the most highly organized, the most enduring institution on the face of the earth. There may be flaws because its earthbound nature: it is human after all. But it is the Body of Christ. It is the Family of God. It is holy.
In its diversity the Church has always responded to the diverse needs of the human community. Its mission extends to all nations as commanded by its founder – our Savior, Jesus Christ.
As evidence of its effective structure and what enables her to endure, it organizes itself into dioceses and parishes. It creates religious communities with a particular mission, responding to particular needs … to the poor, to the sick, to the spiritually hungry, to the imprisoned … to every human need desperate for the touch and compassion of Christ.
The Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe is a very beautiful reflection of the Church and an excellent example of the Church’s outreach to the needs of the people of God.
Our mission too is universal – reflecting the universal embrace of the Church’s most revered and beloved saint, Mary the mother of Our Savior.
We encourage you to periodically check the website and discover how you can be part of the novena of prayers provided in connection with the great feasts of Christ and of Mary … the great feasts of the Church.
Yes, we are part of the universal ministry of the Church … and in a beautiful mystical way, we extend the outreach to offer comfort and prayerful support.
To be one with you.
To entrust to us the needs of your heart is to be blessed with the share in Christ’s love, His life, and His light for the world … each and every day!
