  3. A written transcript of your call will be sent to the appropriate management staff at  the Basilica of Saint Mary.

Use The Basilica’s Idea Line to share:

  • Ideas for money saving measures at the Basilica
  • Suggestions for management
  • Any issues or concerns you may have

The Idea Line has been a great tool and recent  cost saving ideas have helped The Basilca manage expenses during this down economy.

Why is it necessary to set up a special phone line for your suggestions?
The phone line service was donated by a parish member, so it’s available at no cost to The Basilica. A 24-hour phone line makes it easy for people to make suggestions and receive follow-up responses.

Thank you for sharing your ideas and suggestions.
