Thank you for visiting the Basilica! We have been praying together, working together and rejoicing together since 1838 here in Marietta.
We have a beautiful renovated Basilica and an outstanding Catholic School, yet the parish is not buildings – the parish is first and foremost a people – a people called together by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Our parish exists not for itself, but for the mission of Jesus Christ. The parish is called to teach, and witness the Gospel of Christ to our children, to those preparing for deeper Sacramental life, to those alienated from the Church and to those not active in the parish community.
Msgr. John Michael Campbell (Rector)
