The following are some of my pictures that I took at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, in Washington, DC. During Mass I joined about 100+ other seminarians on sitting on the floor around the old High Altar in the side chapels of the Sanctuary. The photos of the Baldachin (Canopy) over the High Altar were taken from where I was sitting. All of the upper church pics were taken after Mass. Not during! It was an extremely blessed experience.
