Diane Rehm, Beloved National Public Radio Host, to Speak at Washington National Cathedral This Sunday

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Diane Rehm will speak at Washington National Cathedral on Sunday, October 9, 2016, beginning at 10:10 a.m. ET, ahead of her retirement after more than thirty-five years on the air at WAMU.

Rehm will host a forum at 10:10 a.m. before serving as the guest preacher during the Holy Eucharist at 11:15 a.m. Rehm’s appearance is part of Washington National Cathedral’s Second Sundays series, which invites guest speakers to focus the congregation’s attention on some of the Cathedral’s top priorities: racial reconciliation, caring for creation and LGBT rights.
