To be remembered within the Shrine Church is a special tribute; and donors dedicating a pew seat will have their name, or that of a loved one, inscribed on an individual brass plate mounted on the polished wood of a Shrine pew.
To dedicate a Commemorative Pew Seat requires a commitment of $900
Engraving information will be etched on a brass plaque, which will be installed at one of the twelve plaque locations available on each pew. Engraving may include cities and states, important dates such as birth, death or anniversary dates, and may include such references as Pray For, In Memory Of, or In Honor Of. The Basilica retains the right to limit and approve all engraving.
We will acknowledge your gift and send you the engraving information for approval prior to having your plaque engraved and installed.
Your memorial information will be recorded on a Certificate of Recognition and sent to you. All donors and all those honored with a gift at Mary’s Shrine are remembered in all of the prayers and Masses offered here, in perpetuity.
