I attended mass at the basilica in June. The order of mass is relatively the same but when it comes time for the eucharist, that is where things get a little less American. They dispense with the orderly pew by pew procession to the altar to receive the eucharist... It was a free-for-all with people sprinting from the rear pews in an attempt to get to the front of the line. Don't delay in getting to the altar or it will be (if I may borrow a little Seinfeld schtick... ) "No communion for you!!"
