Monsignor Harte Memorial Care of the Basilica Endowment

Monsignor Joseph Harte 200w

Monsignor Fachtna Joseph Harte was instrumental in establishing the tourism ministry in the Diocese of Orlando which led to the building of the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe. This beautiful sacred treasure serves as a spiritual home away from home for countless travelers who come from near and far to renew their spirit with the grace of the Sacraments and their devotion to our Blessed Mother.  The Monsignor Harte Memorial Care of the Basilica Endowment is being established to ensure that this center of worship is stewarded and maintained for years to come.
