Basilica of the Sacred Heart to celebrate 125th anniversary

All are invited to attend a special Mass celebrated by the Bishop Daniel R. Jenky, C.S.C., bishop of Peoria, Ill., honoring 125 years of prayer and worship at the University of Notre Dame’s Basilica of the Sacred Heart, located in Notre Dame, Ind., in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, at 4 p.m. on Aug. 16.

The Mass will feature music from alumni of the Notre Dame Liturgical Choir. A reception in the rotunda will follow.

The Basilica—the oldest church of the Congregation of the Holy Cross—serves as the order’s principal church in the United States and as the cornerstone of liturgical life at the University of Notre Dame.

The Basilica was consecrated by the Bishop Joseph G. Dwenger, then-bishop of Fort Wayne, Ind., on Aug. 15, 1888.

For those unable to attend the Aug. 16 Mass in the Basilica, log on to http://campusministry.nd.edu/basilica-of-the-sacred-heart/watch-mass-online/basilica-125th-anniversary-mass to live-stream the Mass online.

The Basilica is open to the public year- round from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. when school is in session, and from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. during holiday breaks or when school is not in session. Visitors are invited to come inside and pray or take a self-guided tour. Tour guides are also available to answer questions.

Mass in the Basilica is celebrated twice daily while the university is in session, and once daily during breaks. Each weekend there are three Sunday Masses celebrated for students, faculty, staff and community members.
