Biographical or historical data
St. Mary's Catholic Church in Alexandria was organized in 1795, and was the first permanent Catholic church in Virginia. The following year, a brick church was erected on donated property. Although this church was never completed, and was eventually moved to another location, the cemetery remained. The present church is at a different location than the cemetery. The sanctuary and major portion of the present church were erected in 1826. For more information see, A BRIEF SKETCH OF THE HISTORY OF ST. MARY'S CHURCH, ALEXANDRIA, VA., by Richard L. Carne, 1874.
