Schedule of Devotions

Mass is celebrated at the Basilica every day, and has been since it was consecrated in the year 525. We also offer Masses and remembrances for other special occasions, listed below. If you would like the friars to remember your intentions in our Masses, Rosary devotions, and the Liturgy of the Hours that we celebrate every day, please visit our Prayer Requests page. If desired, you can specify which devotions you would like for the remembrance.
