Father Edward Hathaway, Rector of the Basilica of Saint Mary, offers a reflection on the Annunciation during our Communal First Saturday. As part of our Communal First Saturdays, one of our priests will reflect on a mystery of the Rosary. Join us every first Saturday of the month at 8:00 am for our Communal First Saturdays.
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.
