South Bend, Ind. Notre Dame's Basilica of the Sacred Heart will be closing for about three weeks for renovations.
It will be closing right after Christmas, on December 26, and remain closed through Friday, January 17. Renovation will include replacing the carpeting with slate tile flooring in the aisles of the Basilica.
Rector for the Basilica Father Rocca says the tile will provide better resonance for choral and organ pieces. Changes in liturgy locations are posted online.
