A place of worship.
A place of refuge.
A place of peace.
More than just a beautiful building, The Basilica of Saint Mary is a gathering place of rich diversity. It's a center for the arts and a place of refuge for people in need. It's a community committed to the growth and well-being of the city.
Together, we celebrate weddings, baptisms and funerals, Christmas and Easter, and weekend Eucharist.
With over 6,700 families, we have an aggressive vision for social outreach. Our St. Vincent de Paul society offers new shoes or workboots, and has since 1986. We partner with Meals on Wheels, offer employment support, help struggling families stabilize their lives through Pathways.
Our John XXIII Art Gallery features local, national and international artists work, and music is available to all through our Spirit and Soul celebration of Black History Month, the Minnesota Sinfonia, The Singers, The Rose Ensemble and others who offer free and low-cost concerts.

Basilica of St. Mary reviews
The Basilica is an imposing Romanesque cathedral in downtown Minneapolis, with towering facade and immense barrel vaults inside. It doesn't, however, match the spectacular St. Paul Cathedral's dome..... more »
I took my mom to a show here for her birthday. She loved it an orchestra was playing and she was amazed. So much art in the church. Really Beautiful. April 2019 more »
A very beautiful and impressionable piece of architecture and art. It was very breath taking walking into the building and seeing the amazing art and layout of the church. Even if you are not a part of the Christian/Catholic religion, if you are into old world art and architecture, take a quick walk around the building; you won't regret it.
A beautiful, welcoming Basilica. Ornate architecture, and friendly ushers and greeters for every Mass. They have frequent Masses. Their Easter Vigil service is very theatrical. I personally did not enjoy that aspect; however, I suspect many others do enjoy it. Either way, it is somewhat darker inside than the Cathedral of St. Paul, which I kind of enjoy, as it feels more calm and intimate.
