A friend of my husband used to work at the Shrine of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in DC. He was so happy when he started but eventually was so disillusioned that he quit. He used to love going to Mass at the shrine before or after work but doesn't feel comfortable even visiting to pray there anymore. According to my husband's friend, he is not the only one who has been dismayed by the odd way the monsignor runs the shrine. Morale among the employees is terrible and he's not the only one who's quit in disgust. There is an old and not at all funny joke that goes,"If you want to lose your faith, go work for your parish." I hope that hasn't happened to anyone who felt they had to leave the shrine.
If you are still donating to the shrine you might want to read this article by George Neumayr. Something is not right.
