This Cathedral follows the call of the prophet Micah: Do justice; Love mercy; Walk humbly with God. With your help, we can change the world for good and serve those most in need.


Feb. 28: HBCU Sunday at the Cathedral

As we round out Black History Month, we will celebrate the contributions of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities, featuring a virtual HBCU choir and readings by the presidents of Howard University and the University of the District of Columbia.
