Can I bring young children?

  • No children under 8 years old will be allowed. Since this is a "Live" television event, any loud noises will make it difficult to produce the show. There is no crying room in the Basilica. We do however encourage you to bring older children who can sit at attention for a two hour + period. Thank you in advance for your understanding on this matter.
