A Note from the Canon for Worship

Worship is at the heart of our life here at Washington National Cathedral. We come together to pray, to sing, to be still and to reflect, as many have done here for more than 100 years. No matter where you are on your journey of faith, you have a home at this Cathedral.

It is our deepest hope to offer Cathedral worship services that allow you – whether in person or online – to enter into a closer relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Ranging from intimate to grand and embracing a range of liturgical styles and music, Cathedral services reflect our love for congregational and individual worship and our commitment to presenting services of the highest caliber. Such services take a committed team of clergy, staff, and volunteers who bring a diverse range of gifts and talents. Working together, it is a great joy to bring the Cathedral’s worship services to life with all who gather––in this space and virtually across the miles.

–The Rev. Canon Rosemarie Logan Duncan
