Basilica of the Assumption
“The historic Baltimore Basilica, built from 1806-1821, was the first great metropolitan cathedral constructed in the United States after the adoption of the Constitution. “When the Cathedral was first constructed, the only building that could compete with it in size, scale, and architectural sophistication was the United States Capitol. “No other Catholic edifice in America can claim to have seen so much history made inside its walls,” observed George Weigel, acclaimed biographer of Pope John Paul II, and NBC News Vatican analyst.
Since 1976, the Basilica has hosted visits by Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa of Calcutta. (From Basilica website)
We will be joined by choirs from:
Saint Ignatius Church in Baltimore
(Founded in 1856 before Chizuk Amuno!)
Douglas Memorial Community Church
It has developed a strong and active congregation. It has been named for its founding minister, Frederick Douglas, who was himself named for the great abolitionist.
The Baltimore Maryland State Choir of The Church of Latter-Day Saints
