Join us for Daily Online Worship

While the Cathedral remains closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are fully committed to bringing our “house of prayer for all people” to you. All are welcome to take part in our daily online services: a morning and evening service of prayer Monday–Saturday, and a Sunday Holy Eucharist.

Please join us for Daily Morning and Evening Services of Prayer (7 am and 7 pm) and our live Sunday Holy Eucharist webcast. All services will be available via:

‘Plate donations’ during virtual services: While the building is closed, donations to the congregation can still be made online. Regular monthly credit card payments will continue as scheduled. If you have any questions about your congregational pledge or about making a one-time gift to the Cathedral congregation, please email Emily Davis.


Congregation Ministries & Events Online

We will keep you updated as additional online offerings become available. You can also refer to the Cathedral calendar for an updated list of online offerings.

  • Virtual Coffee Hour
    Vicar Dana invites you to join her this Sunday for a virtual Congregation Coffee Hour. The Zoom link is below for the first 100 congregation members who log on (due to meeting size restrictions). Make sure you have your coffee and tea mugs ready to make a toast to Jesus and to one another! Join us at 12:45 pm online here: zoom.us/j/2841894332. Simply click the link, and you will be directed to the video. A little unsure of how these calls work? Hop on 15 minutes early, and we’ll help with any technical issues.
  • Sanctuary Committee
    Online Event: Tuesday, March 31 – 7:30 pm: Sanctuary Committee Teleconference

    Let’s walk through the Bible to discover Holy Week and Easter all over again. The vicar is beginning a Zoom-led Bible study beginning on Wednesday, April 1, at 10 am for six consecutive Wednesday mornings.  Spots are limited for Congregation members only. Email congregation@cathedral.org to register.

    Plans are still being finalized for the April 20 discussion of Madame Bovary by Gustav Flaubert. We will update with more information when it becomes available.
  • Martha’s Table
    We strive to continue to feed our hungry neighbors at this particularly challenging time. We are still determining best practices for our April 19 drop-off, but we want to share other ways to support Martha’s Table. To learn how to make a much-needed donation, or how to volunteer at one of their DC locations, visit www.marthastable.org.
  • Gun Violence Prevention
    The GVP Committee will hold its regularly scheduled monthly meeting via conference call on April 14.

If you have any other questions, they probably have an answer on their site—it’s a wonderful resource. We hope to “see” you soon!


Help Support Friendship Place 

Due to coronavirus closures, we are unable to continue with this year’s Community Easter Basket Drive. However, we still hope to raise money in support of our partner Friendship Place. Every gift will help provide for children, veterans, and other newly-housed families in the DC region.
