In this Easter Season, let us rejoice in the peace & hope of the Risen Jesus singing Alleluia!

Throughout the year -- especially during this holy season -- individuals are drawn to our Basilica of Our Lady of Victory. Shortly after the designation of this Shrine as a Basilica, the Vatican newspaper stated that those who pray to in this sacred space find "powerful food to deepen their faith." 

Indeed, more than 30,000 pilgrims and visitors come from all over to the Basilica to be inspired, to hear God's voice, and to receive peace and hope.




As we commemorate the 40 days of Lent, I ask you to consider a sacrificial gift of $40 to help us support the programs and services offered to children and families and to preserve our Basilica as a special place of worship. By doing so, you ensure the shrine remains a place of inspiration to all those who come here for spiritual solace. 

You can submit an Easter Gift and your special intentions to be remembered in prayer by clicking the image below.  On that page, you can also honor loved ones by sending them our beautiful, limited edition Golden Treasury Easter cards (the "Alleluia" image below is taken from the front of the card).

Together, let's convey the exciting message of Easter!  And on Easter morning, let's rejoice in the peace and hope of the Risen Christ by singing Alleluia!
