Awesome inside and out
kwi 2021
We're not Catholic and probably wouldn't have thought of visiting the Basilica but because so many other sites in DC were closed (because of covid), my son knew this was open and we're so glad that it was. It is awesome, inside and outside. There are many side chapels with beautiful wall mosaics. It was all awesome!! I would recommend it to everyone.

Gorgeous place to meditate

My friends and I didn't expect it to be so beautiful, but it really is the nicest holy place I've been to next to the Vatican in Rome.

You can really spend all day here. So peaceful and spiritual! There's so much to explore and so much art to view. The organ sounds amazing during mass.

Impressive Christian edifice
gru 2020
While technically not a cathedral, as it is not the seat of a Bishop, the Shrine is cathedral like in size and craftmanship. It It has chapels dedicated to different saints of the Church. The National Conference of bishops is held here annually with a procession that is open to the public. The Shrine has the size and grandeur of a church, that one usually has to travel to Europe, to experience .

Amazing art in this grand House of Worship
gru 2020
Thanks to the Columbia magazine of the Knights of Columbus, I was inspired to visit this most magnificent complex. I attended Sunday Mass at noon and I heard the most beautiful singing from a Quintet throughout the service especially during the Lamb of God which I have never heard before as this in their soft melody chant to our Lord. Also, the Readings of the Gospel were done in a voice so emphatic that one would want to emulate. The Basilica was finished approximately 60 years ago and has around a hundred shrines in all areas which include the large Upper church, lower Crypt church and different foyers and enclosed Chapels for prayer and meditation. Pope St John Paul II visited here as it is the National Shrine in the USA dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, the Mother of our Lord who we celebrate on December 8 each year to signify the beginning of the Virgin Mary's important role, then and now in the life of Jesus, our Lord and Redeemer. I want to return when restrictions are lifted to fully realize the Spiritual rewards entrusted to all the pilgrims visiting

Beautiful, and very calming

This is a bit out of the way, but if you have time, worth a visit. Artwork, mosaics are brilliant. When I was there the church was empty. Very peaceful. Very glad I had the chance to see it.

The Basilica tour guide gave our women’s group a fantastic tour providing a lot of back stories to the numerous chapels inside the cathedral. I love my Catholic faith!

Awesome place to visit. Unbelievable beauty in terms of architecture, statuary, mosaics and paintings. This is a huge church with both upper and lower churches and dozens of chapels and alcoves to pray in. Construction began in 1920 and was completed in 1959 after delays caused by death, depression, market crash and fund raising.

Visiting a Catholic site
lut 2020
Visiting a Catholic site. Basilica was on the campus of the American Catholic University. The church/Basilica was beautiful We walked in when the choir was practicing it was amazing it was like a midnight mass going on from the way echoed throughout the church. There are many statues to visit of Saints and religious figures easy to travel to on the subway train system in DC

I was lucky enough to visit during lenten season and must say it is an amazing place. Catholic or not, the architecture, the upkeep and displays are spectacular.
