The archdiocese will recommit itself to Christ through the dedication Sunday, June 17, of its new Shrine of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.

Archbishop Raymond L. Burke is encouraging broad participation in the sacred event at the cathedral basilica, 4431 Lindell Blvd. in the Central West End. Archdiocesan lay Catholics of all ages, priests, deacons and men and women religious have been invited to take part.

The enthronement, blessing and dedication of the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus will take place at the end of 5 p.m. Mass. A reception in Boland Hall, next door to the cathedral basilica, will follow.
