The Cathedral will be closed Friday, Jan. 20 and until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21, for the Inaugural Prayer Service.
In these anxious and uncertain times, there are two things we know for certain: God is faithful, and God hears our prayers.
We at Washington National Cathedral would like to help you pray for the needs of our nation and our world by building a customized prayer to share with your friends and loved ones.
The President and Vice President will come to the Cathedral for an interfaith service of prayer, music and scripture readings, designed to reflect the diversity of our nation and to remind the President that he is called to lead all us, not just a narrow few.
Because tickets are limited, we invite you to watch the service online.Watch on Saturday

Dr. King called on faith communities to be sanctuary for those in need and to demonstrate public witness to injustice. Through song, narrative, and prophetic reflection, this celebration explores how faith communities have lived into that call, and what sanctuary and witness look like today.Watch Now Download Service Leaflet
