Matching Donation Pledged

An anonymous family has offered to match dollar for dollar, up to $10,000, for contributions made during the month of November.   To date $17,290 of the $30,000 needed has been contributed, so you still have a chance to help us take advantage of this generous matching offer to double the impact of your donation.  In the case that we exceed our goal, any excess funds will be earmarked for sanctuary improvements in the Basilica.

Installation and Unveiling Completed

The installation and ceremony for the unveiling of the cross went off without a hitch, despite the rainy weather.  See below for pictures on the event.

Ways to Donate

The costs associated with taking the cross down, fixing it and putting it back on top of the Basilica are estimated to be around $30,000. We need your help! You can be part of this historic moment by contributing any amount of money to our “Resurrection of the Cross”fund. Ways to Donate are listed in the table below.
