Father Edward Hathaway, Rector of the Basilica of Saint Mary, launches our Year of Saint Joseph Podcast Series. During this edition, he explains the purpose of the Year of Saint Joseph and reflects on Pope Francis' document on Saint Joseph, "Patris Corde."
During this Year of Saint Joseph, the Basilica will release a podcast on Saint Joseph on the 19th of every month.
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.
