Basilica of Saint Mary Podcast

Sep 5, 2018

In the second episode of The Basilica of Saint Mary Podcast, Alex Solsma talks with Father David Dufresne, who is a parochial vicar at the Basilica of Saint Mary. Father David shares his dramatic story of conversion. He was a member of a gang as a teenager, but he ultimately left that lifestyle and became a priest.

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.
