Basilica of Sacred Heart
Centuries of Worship
Consecrated in 1888, The Basilica of the Sacred Heart serves as the mother church of the Congregation of Holy Cross in the United States. It is also one of the country’s most in-demand wedding venues, with scores of engaged couples vying for a limited number of spots after beginning the application process.
Diocesan guidelines require that weddings at Notre Dame be celebrated in the Basilica (seats 700), Lady Chapel (seats 60), Log Chapel (seats 35), or Mary, Queen of Angels Chapel (seats 125). New in July 2018, reservations for wedding ceremonies at university sacred spaces are open on a two-year rolling calendar. All reservations must be made online.
