The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Usher at the Basilica

"The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception stands in northeast Washington as a monument to the faith of American Catholics. It reflects visibly, pastorally and spiritually the presence of the Knights of Columbus. The great bell tower, the 329-foot Knights’ Tower, was completed in 1959. This gift from the Knights of Columbus proclaims the Order’s undying devotion to the Mother of God and our Mother while, at the same time, making a quiet statement about the Order’s presence in the U.S. capitol." - From the KofC Supreme Council Website
