Because no interior lighting other than candles will be in use during the Mass, those interested in the day’s Lesson and Gospel are advised to review them beforehand. A donation page has been set up on the Shrine’s website for those wishing to contribute candles for the Mass. After the Rorate Mass, there will be a potluck meal in the church basement.

The Shrine is located at 114 West Saratoga Street in downtown Baltimore. Street parking will be available; no parking-meter fees are charged before 8:00 am.
