Solemn Mass of the Immaculate Conception and Dedication of the Trinity Dome

National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Washington DC


On December 8, 2017 his Emmience Donald Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, blessed and dedicated the central dome of the National Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.  It is the final portion of the Basilica to be completed since construction began in 1920.

During his pastoral visit to the United States in 2015, Pope Francis blessed the final portion of the mosaic of the Trinity Dome which was installed in January 2017.

This past May, a special collection was taken up in the parishes of the United States to help complete the funding of this special project to the honor and glory of God in his holy and Immaculate Mother.
