8:00am – 4:00pm

Women Walking with Christ is a series of local summer excursions offered by the Saint Andrew’s Women’s Ministry that provides the opportunity for prayer and fellowship with other parish women.

Join us for our first excursion of the summer as we unite in prayer for the ten newly ordained priests in the Archdiocese of Washington with the solemn liturgy of Ordination at the Basilica. The men will offer their first blessings following the Mass. You will also have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the of the Shrine, including visits to chapels on the Crypt Level and the Great Upper Church with information about the history of the Shrine, the architecture, and the ecclesiastical artwork. Tours are available by reservation only and are limited to 30 persons. We will end the day together in a reserved chapel for the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
