As America's very first Cathedral, this imposing structure is an architectural jewel and a place of worship for people all over the world.

The Basilica of the Assumption, also known as the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, has been a pilgrimage destination for decades. The newly renovated (in 2006) church hosts concerts, lectures and masses for both locals and visitors.
