BASILICA OF THE NATIONAL SHRINE OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION Annual Tower Tour September 7, 2018

 Annual Tower Tour September 7, 2018

      On September 7, 2018, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception will once again offer an extraordinary opportunity to view our Nation's capital from the Knight's Tower.

Tour opportunities are available on Friday, September 7, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visitors will ascend the Tower elevator to the observation level where they can take in spectacular views in all four directions. There are no tickets or reservations to take advantage of this unique experience; visitors will be permitted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please be advised: visitors must be able to climb 85 steps to reach the Tower Elevator. Please ensure you are in good physical condition. Visitors who experience claustrophobia, those who do not like elevators, or anyone who suffers from a condition where riding in an enclosed elevator may be uncomfortable should not attend. Children are permitted, but parents should consider the stairs in their decision to bring younger children along. Strollers are not permitted into the Tower, and no storage is available at the Basilica.

Food and drink are not permitted. Bags, suitcases, camera cases, large purses or other bulky items are not permitted. Photography is allowed but the use of tripods is not permitted. Prohibited items cannot be stored. Please leave the items in your vehicle or leave them home.

The Basilica offers ample free parking and is conveniently located within walking distance of the Brookland-CUA Station on Metro's Red Line. For more information, please call the Basilica at 202-526-8300.

An Idea for our August THIRD Saturday Meeting From Steve

Are you familiar with Bishop Barron's new series on The Mass? It's a DVD set but he has made the first episode available for free online. It's excellent and only 24 minutes long. I was thinking that it could be the topic of a meeting -- most likely a third Saturday meeting since we will still be discussing the book for several more weeks.

I suppose the parish has wi-fi and we can project it up on a screen or at least show it on a lap top. Since we sit at a table, we probably can all get a good view of a screen of that size. 

Here's the link. It's very much worth the view.
