Light Up Shrine!

Light Up Shrine!

Let’s make this the best Advent, ever! Join us for a great outdoor event with Christmas lights and votive candles to celebrate the Advent & Christmas season. Join us to light up Shrine!

We’ll hear some beautiful music, share some words of hope from our priests and others, and offer our prayers up through a candlelight procession around the basilica.   There will also be food trucks, horse-drawn sleigh rides, crafts for kids and more!

All are welcome- families and little ones, too.
