“Just incredible....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

We attended Palm Sunday Mass with the Archbishop. What an incredible experience. Not only is the Basilica beautiful, but the ushers and greeters were warm and friendly as well. My 12 year old daughter could not help but look up all during Mass. (How great is that?)
