The Basilica of Saint Mary
Liturgy

The communal celebration of the liturgy is the "source and summit" of the life of a parish. It is in the liturgy that we express who we are as Christians. It is in the liturgy that we continue to be formed in the ways of our Christian life. The celebrant of the liturgy is the entire community, from priest to parishioner, from musician to minister of hospitality. The preferred language of the liturgy is art in its many different expressions: architecture, music, visual arts, movement and poetry.

At The Basilica of Saint Mary, with its magnificent building, artistic riches, musical talent and thriving community, we hold this mandate to heart. From very traditional celebrations with the Basilica Cathedral Choir and small orchestra, to West African sounds and Mexican dances, to piano and guitar; whatever language or music is used, the liturgy is like no other. Join us today and experience the joy of life in Christ Jesus as never before.
