Enjoy the beauty of our historic, well preserved church, which is conducive to prayer and contemplation. Located in the heart of Old Town, Alexandria, we offer a quiet, sacred space away from the business of everyday life.

We look forward to your visit of our beautiful Basilica. If you are driving a distance to get here or are coming as a group, we ask that you please call the parish office to schedule your visit at 703-836-4100This ensures that your visit won’t conflict with a funeral, wedding rehearsal or other events going on at the Basilica.
