Lighting of the National Cathedral for Wear Orange

Friday, June 7, 2019 | 8:00pm

The façade of the Washington National Cathedral will light up in orange in honor of National Gun Violence Awareness Day, Hadiya Pendleton and the over 100,000 Americans killed and injured in the United States every year by gun violence. The Bourdon Bell will ring 109 times at 9 pm in memory of Americans who die daily from gunfire. We hope you will join with others at the Cathedral for this quiet, respectful and powerful event at which you can remember and honor those who have died and reflect on the reason why the Cathedral and so many other buildings and people across the country are wearing orange. Above-ground parking is available. RSVP HERE:
