About Basilica Of Saint Lawrence, Asheville

Considered as one of the most important religious communes of Asheville the Basilica was built in 1909. Although it’s just about a century old, looks quite antique and historic. It has the largest freestanding elliptical dome in the country. Its interiors are quite intricately carved and exotic. The Basilica is most famous for its stained glass windows. Many biblical events are depicted on the stained windows such as the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Nativity of Christ, the Child Christ teaching in the Temple, and the Conversion of Saint Paul. Over the Church grounds, they have a rectory for the priest, as well as a Catholic library and a gift shop for tourists, which are opened after weekend Masses. Behind the basilica is a Mary garden, which contains a life-size white statue of the Virgin Mary.
