Welcome to your National Cathedral!

Whether you’re a Cathedral regular or this is your first visit, we’re excited to welcome you to discover something new. It is our prayer that you feel welcome here and can see a piece of yourself in this house of prayer for all people.
Everything about this Cathedral invites us to reflect on something greater than ourselves: our story as a nation, our call to service, and our walk with our Creator.
We’re so glad you’re here, and look forward to welcoming you again soon!
The Very Rev. Randy Hollerith
Dean, Washington National Cathedral
