National Collection

Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
The Bishops of the United States have approved a special one-time second collection to take place in parishes across the nation on Mother’s Day 2017 to support the mosaic ornamentation of the Trinity Dome, the crowning jewel of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. Also known as America’s Catholic Church, the National Shrine has been a century in the making, built by and for the faithful of our great nation in honor of our Blessed Mother, the patroness of the United States.
