In one of the most beautiful services of the year, we herald the Light made known to us on this holy night. Join us as we celebrate Christ’s birth with readings from Holy Scripture, favorite hymns, seasonal choral and instrumental music, and preaching by the Right Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Washington. This service includes Holy Communion. Incense will be used.

To protect the health of everyone in our community, we will shift all Cathedral services online through the holiday season, and the building will be closed to visitors and worshippers for all activities. This service will no longer be available in-person.
