Annual Fund

      The Basilica of the National Shrine was built on an unshakable foundation of faith. Our physical construction, however, is of stone and steel, marble and glass, much of which is now nearly a century old.  It is an expensive undertaking, indeed, to maintain this extraordinary and sacred shrine — the largest Catholic Church in America — to ensure that we are able to open our doors each day for the thousands of pilgrims who travel here on their spiritual journey. 

      Please consider supporting our 2019 Annual Fund. We count on you when we raise the funds that will be needed throughout the year to continue our mission of pilgrimage, prayer, and worship. 

      It is our Annual Fund that helps make it possible to meet the considerable operating expenses of maintaining the Shrine in honor of our Blessed Mother. Your generous support is critical to our efforts. Today I ask you to please consider making an offering to our 2018 Annual Fund. 

Contribute to the National Shrine 2019 Annual Fund 

      The National Shrine is a place of beauty and reverence. It is our honor to ensure that every pilgrim experiences this holy place in all its glory. To help make this possible, I hope that every supporter of the National Shrine will please consider making a gift to our 2018 Annual Fund Campaign which provides the funds that are necessary to ensure the continued operation of the National Shrine.

      The National Shrine is, first and foremost, a place of prayer. If there is someone for whom we may pray on your behalf, please submit their names now, along with your own personal prayer intentions, by completing this Prayer Intentions Form. If you are able to make a gift in support of our 2018 Annual Fund, please do so here. Thank you and God Bless You. 

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Reverend Monsignor Walter R. Rossi
