Matthew Shepard’s final resting place at the Cathedral is marked with a plaque in St. Joseph’s Chapel. On December 1, Matthew’s birthday, the Cathedral will welcome visitors to the chapel for the first time since the pandemic closed our doors. All are welcome to come for support, connection, reflection and engagement.

No registration; free and open to the public. Masks are required for Cathedral entry and in-person participation.

Can’t join us in-person? Connect in spirit with people around the world as we honor Matthew and the LGBTQIA community and pray for a more just world. Prayers, images for reflection, opportunities for action, and videos will be shared throughout the day on the Center for Prayer and Pilgrimage’s Facebook page.
