If you have been away from the Church for a while, know that St. Peter’s is always ready to welcome you home.  St. Peter’s is a warm community of faith and committed to helping anyone and everyone draw closer to Christ through the Catholic Church.  We hope that you will consider coming to Confession and Mass to begin your journey home, or think about contacting a priest to discuss whatever may be keeping you away.  We miss you and hope to see you soon!

Blessing of the Bambinelli and Lighting of the Christmas Tree at the National Shrine

Sunday, Dec 21, 4:30pm. This year the National Shrine will host its first annual Blessing of the Bambinelli and Lighting of the Christmas Tree on Sun, Dec 21 at the 4:30pm Mass. Bring the Baby Jesus from your Nativity scene to be blessed at the National Shrine on this Fourth Sunday of Advent. This annual tradition in St. Peter’s Square features the Pope offering a special blessing after his weekly Angelus for all those who brought their Bambinelli. Following the Mass and Blessing of the Bambinelli, the National Shrine will bless and ceremoniously light the Christmas Tree as we prepare for the birth of Jesus. Join us for this special opportunity to start your Christmas week! No tickets or reservations are required. The Basilica is located at 400 Michigan Ave, NE, offers ample free parking, and is walking distance from the Brookland-CUA Station on Metro’s Red Line. For more info, please visit www.nationalshrine.com or call 202.526.8300.
