Not your average church picnic.

Using the tagline/commandment “Witness It,” we put a light-hearted spin on the mysteries and miracles of Catholicism, while reminding people there are some marvels in this world not to be missed.

If a woman scorned can be furious, imagine the ire of an all-female band left out of the Basilica Block Party’s lineup. Such was the story behind “Hell Hath No Fury,” a fictitious rock group whose anger-fueled antics created a ton of social content as they demanded equal stage time with the event’s headliners.
