Help Share the Hope

It’s been a long, dark year, and we could all use a little hope.

Across cultures and religious traditions, doves represent hope, peace and rebirth. Many of the over 2,000 paper doves that make up “Les Colombes” at the Cathedral are inscribed with hopeful and prayerful messages.

We invite you to write a message of hope — for yourself, for your family or for our nation — and we’ll add it to the Cathedral’s virtual flock. Together, these gentle messengers of peace will point the way to a new day of renewal.
