This weekend, the Basilica School of Saint Mary will host several events to commemorate its 150th anniversary. On this podcast, two school alumni, Emily Gaietto (Class of 2009) and Tom Carter (Class of 1967), share memories from their time as students at Saint Mary's.
Founded in 1795, the Basilica of Saint Mary in Old Town Alexandria is the first Catholic parish established in Virginia. Pope Francis named the church a minor basilica on December 6, 2017 due to its important role in the growth of the Catholic Church in North America.
