Knights commit another $1M to national shrine

.- The Knights of Columbus have made a $1-million gift to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. The contribution makes the Order the lead donor of a 3,780 square-foot mosaic dome in the Shrine’s Great Upper Church, which will depict themes relating to the Incarnation.

Since 1989, the Order has regularly funded televised liturgies or other spiritual broadcasts from the shrine.

The announcement of the Knights’ gift came on the day the Church celebrated the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.
