Sunday on ABC-TV: “Building a Basilica”, a New Documentary about OLV

“Among the churches of America,the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Victory is, for many reasons, to be counted as one of the greatest. This sanctuary is truly a masterpiece, in the nobility of its lines, in the splendor of its marbles, in its massive solidarity, and in its artistic finish…” -Quoted from the Apostolic Decree by Pope Pius XI

This Sunday, one of Buffalo’s shining examples of stunning architecture and religious splendor will be in the national spotlight. “Building a Basilica” : How the Our Lady of Victory Basilica & National Shrine Came To Be is scheduled to air on ABC-TV beginning Sunday, January 19 at noon (film will be broadcasted locally on Ch. 7). Narrated by actor Brian Dennehy, the production will recount the formations of the landmark, and tell the tales of the shrine that was Fr. Nelson Baker’s dream… that only became a reality thanks to the skilled work of French-born architect Emile Uhlrich.

Sunday, January 19, 2014 | 12:00pm until 1:00pm

“Building a Basilica” : How the Our Lady of Victory Basilica & National Shrine came to be, will also air nationwide during various dates and times (see here). The film was produced by the Diocese of Buffalo’s award-winning TV production unit, Daybreak TV Productions.
