Basilica of the Sacred Heart celebrates 125 years


A big milestone at Notre Dame. The University is marking 125 years of worship at the Basillica of the Sacred Heart.

A special mass was held there today. Parishoners say they are always taken back by the landmark's beauty.

"It's overwhelming when you go inside," said Notre Dame employee Sharon Harwell. "The renovations that they made years ago you can certainly tell it's been taken care of."

Friday's consecration of the Basilica took place back on August 15th, 1888.
