Honoring Mary and all mothers

On Sunday, May 14, 2017 we celebrate Mother’s Day. Pray with us!

Let us praise God with joy and thanksgiving for the gift of Our Blessed Mother, Co-Redemptrix, and all of our mothers who bring God’s gracious love to His people.

In Honor of Mother’s Day, the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe is hosting its 21st Annual Flower Market beginning Saturday, May 13 at 4 p.m. through Sunday night on May 14. All are welcome!

A Basilica tradition of 10,000 Roses are placed around the Sanctuary in honor of Our Lady, the perfect flower, and all mothers for their unconditional love.

The Flower Market sells single stem roses for $2 and a corsage with a Rosary ring for $10. Below are pictures from their 20th anniversary last year.
