A Gift in Memory of Matthew ShepardWashington National Cathedral is honored to serve as a final resting place for Matthew Shepard, and to serve all Americans as a house of prayer for all people. This Cathedral tells the story of faith, but also the story of the nation, and it is fitting that Matthew’s story will become a permanent part of the Cathedral’s – and the nation's – story.
Everything that happens at the Cathedral – our mission, our witness, our service and our programs – is made possible by people just like you. The Cathedral receives no support from either the federal government or any national church body.
A gift in memory of Matthew Shepard enables the Cathedral to continue and expand its mission, and to open its doors to the nation at moments just like this. It is our joy and privilege to do this work, and we appreciate partners from across the country. From everyone at the Cathedral, thank you for your support.
