Nathan Phillips Attempted to Disrupt Mass at DC’s Basilica

Nathan Phillips was not just trying to disrupt events around students at the March for Life. He also attempted to disrupt Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. This has gone mostly unreported, but the Catholic News Agency has the story.

The group of 20 demonstrators was stopped by shrine security as it tried to enter the church during its 5:15 pm Vigil Mass, according to a shrine security guard on duty during the Mass.

“It was really upsetting,” the guard told CNA.

“There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.”

The guard said the incident was a disappointment during a busy and joyful weekend for the shrine.

“We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life, to celebrate each other together. That a protest tried to come inside during Mass was really the worst.”

The guard told CNA the situation was “tense.”

A source close to the Basilica confirms Phillips was involved.
