In 2015, Archbishop William Lori wrote a Pastoral Letter on Evangelization called “A Light Brightly Visible: Lighting the Path to Missionary Discipleship.” In this watershed letter, Archbishop Lori reminded us of Our Lord’s commandment to his disciples prior to his ascension into heaven: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” (Mt. 28:19).
The Source of All Hope Mission at the Basilica is simply a response to the needs in our neighborhood by serving 3 groups:
Group #1: Those who don’t know Christ or His Catholic Church living in Baltimore City.
Group #2: Those who are addicted and/or homeless living near the Basilica Parish.
Group #3: Those who come to the Basilica weekly to worship God.
