Light in the Darkness Project
Together with artists Kerry James Marshall and Elizabeth Alexander, this Cathedral aims to tell an expanded story about who and what we value through brilliant stained glass windows and elegant carved stone.
Each window and carving at Washington National Cathedral tells two overlapping stories: our walk with God and our journey together as Americans. Whether marching together to build God’s kingdom or tripping over our own pride, we know that God walks alongside us and continually calls us forward.
The Cathedral’s Light in the Darkness windows replacement project will capture the resilience, faith and endurance of African Americans and our nation’s struggle with the original sins of racism and slavery. We hope these new installations tell a more inclusive story, and reflect the dignity of each beloved child of God.
We invite you to walk in the light with us as we rejoice in the confident belief that God can make all things new.
