Giving a Mass card, and with it the promise of the Eucharist being celebrated for a particular intention, has long been a way of expressing support, sympathy and care for a relative or friend or simply to thank God for favors received. You can request an announced Mass to be said for a living or deceased family member, friend or loved one by coming in person to the Rectory Office at 1723 Race Street, Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. The offering for these Masses is $10 for each Mass.
The Sanctuary Candle burns continuously at the Main Altar of the Basilica as a reminder to all who enter that Jesus is truly present in the Tabernacle. If you wish to make a donation ($15) for your personal intentions or for others, please call the rectory 215-561-1313 for more information and to make arrangements.
