Deacon John Walsh and the Basilica Shrine of Saint Mary

We chat with Deacon John Walsh about the history, art, and architecture of the Basilica Shrine of St. Mary here in Wilmington. Through the efforts of many priests, this beautiful church was not only built in 1912, but these priests also helped build a school and a rectory, they bought the Tileston Center where so many wonderful ministries serve the people to this day, and they worked to make this magnificent church elevated to both a shrine and a minor basilica. In this show, we learn about the pastors who did so much to make our beautiful basilica shrine a place of pilgrimage and worship for all Catholics.
