What’s the difference between a church, a
cathedral, and a basilica?
Titus 2:1-8, 10-14, Luke 17:7-10
Wednesday, November 12
The word church originally did not mean a
building. It was a term used to designate the
assembled believers. In the New Testament,
church was used to identify those who
believed in Jesus Christ and followed his way.
Later the term took on its modern definition: a
building in which Christian believers gather
for worship, especially to celebrate the Eucharist.
A cathedral is the bishop’s church and
the chief church of a diocese or archdiocese.
The name takes its origin from cathedra, the
“bishop’s chair.” The bishops of old delivered
their homilies from the bishop’s chair in the
A basilica is an early form of church
building used for Christian worship. This was
especially the case in the western part of the
Roman Empire after the time of Constantine
(fourth century).
Today, basilica is an honorary title given to
certain churches by the pope. Rome has four
major basilicas: St. John Lateran (the pope’s
cathedral church, which we honor today),
St. Peter’s at the Vatican, St. Paul’s Outside
the Walls, and St. Mary Major. In addition, a
number of churches in Rome and throughout
the world are designated as minor basilicas.
Whether we worship in the basilica of
St. Peter’s in Rome or in a parish church, we
seek to draw closer to the Lord in our worship
and prayers.

Choose one of the following activities as a way to

As a family, talk about how words or actions can
"build up" or "tear down." How can our words and
action "build up" or "tear down" the church?
As a family, take time to "tour" your church after

how the church building provides a welcoming
Invite each family member to share what they like
best about your parish church.
As a family, think of a service project you could do

include: picking up trash outside, weeding flower
beds or sidewalks, or washing windows. You might

The Chili and Gumbo Cook-off this year was
an incredible success! With 12 different types
of chili or gumbo to try, hundreds of people
came out to enjoy great weather and fantastic
food. Over $1,600 was raised to support the
Youth Programs at Mary Queen! A special thanks goes out to
the Mary Queen Youth Council, Chuck Turner, Dave Valdez,
the judges, the teams and patrons who came out for an awesome afternoon. A very special congratulations goes to this
year’s winners. We hope to see you next year!
