Although St. Mary's has been around since the early 1900's, it didn't become a Basilica until 1985. when Holiness Pope John Paul II elevated the status of St. Mary's to this deserved level. This was followed by a papal visit in 1987. The Basilica itself is beautiful, inviting and maintained in pristine condition, and the grounds are worthy of a visit in their own right.
If you are Catholic, a visit to St. Mary's Basilica is an absolute must. If not, it's still very worthy of a visit simply for the history and beauty you'll find.
