Blessings to all!
The Vatican issued a decree granting St. Mary Catholic Church in Alexandria, the title 'minor basilica,' making it the first basilica in Northern Virginia, the first in the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, and the 84th in the United States. This announcement was made by Bishop Burbidge following the 8:30 AM Mass on Sunday, January 14, 2018. We were blessed to have the Bishop celebrate the Mass with our parish and to join us to deliver this special announcement. I refer you to the parish website for more information on the Basilica and its significance.
This is an exciting time for our school, the largest apostolate of the newly appointed Basilica of St. Mary. We are part of a parish that now holds a special bond of communion with the Holy Father. Our teachers are looking forward to helping their students learn the significance of a Catholic Basilica while they grow in their faith.
I am pleased to announce that St. Mary Catholic School will now become The Basilica School of St. Mary. This is a great honor and distinction for our school.I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your constant support of our school. I am privileged to serve our parish as the school principal.
Yours in Christ+

At the direction of our Student Council, St. Mary School participated in the "Student to Student: A Catholic School Response for Hurricane Relief 2017" campaign. Together we raised $1,313 to help Catholic schools impacted by storms to rebuild, reopen, and re-enroll students. This was a powerful opportunity to engage students in living the Gospel message of compassionate service to others. Thank you for your generosity.
