As America votes in a contentious election, the Cathedral will open its doors for a 14-hour vigil of prayer and reflection.
This is the first time the Cathedral will be open to the public since the COVID-19 pandemic closed the doors in March.
Throughout the day, clergy will lead continuous prayers, and we invite you to join us for a brief moment of peace and time in the presence of God.
- Attendance will be limited in accordance with District of Columbia public health guidelines; the Cathedral will be able to welcome no more than 100 people at any one time.
