Our Parish

A community rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ; committed to the spiritual growth and social well being of the city.

The Basilica Community 

Though the Basilica building provides a landmark for the city of Minneapolis, it is through the work of our parish of activists and healers that makes us a community landmark. Through the dedication and tenacity of our volunteers and the staff at the Basilica, our commitment to community goes beyond the walls of our church. All of us are searching for a direction in our faith journey. At the Basilica of Saint Mary, you will find comfort and guidance.

Learn how we've been more than a church for more than a century.
