Trivia Time


Where was this picture taken?


Clues:
1) On the way there, I visited Fr. Daren Zehnle in Effingham, Illinois.
2) It is a basilica.
(My brother is not allowed to answer!)
By the way, say an extra prayer for Fr. Zehnle and his parish. My visit was unfortunately cut short due to some tragic situations. See his blog for details.


Clue #3: a little further west from Notre Dame

Clue #4: 'if you build it, they will come.'

I don't know where that is, but I think I'd like to pay a visit.

Thank you for the request for prayers.

Kyle,
I know it's not Notre Dame, they have the most beautiful basillica around :)

Ok, I cheated. I googled it and found it. It looks neat.

I do believe this particular basilica was built by a certain Bishop Hennessy.

Don't know. But get rid of that free standing altar and you're good to go.

Thanks Father, I didn't know there were so many! I have seen the one in Dyersville Iowa but have been through Effingham many times and did not know there was on there.
