69 Basilicas in 65 Cities!

There’s a new basilica in the US down in the Volunteer State! Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Saints Peter and Paul Church was approved for the status of minor basilica back in May. A Mass of Thanksgiving will be offered for the decision on October 22. You can read more about the story here. I’ve updated the list and the map – I’ll get around to Wikipedia eventually…

Also, for those who have been keeping count, it has been 11 months since the last (and thus far, only) basilica for us. Yes, I cringe at that a little. If we only make it to one basilica a year, we’ll never finish! My boyfriend and I are in the process of making plans for a few in the upcoming months. I’m sure some of those plans will succeed and others won’t, but sometimes life gets in the way of making a good trip. I personally would like to see us make it to at least five between August of 2011 and 2012. We’ll see how well we do with that…
