Washington National Cathedral
The Washington National Cathedral stands high over D.C. as a beacon of faith for the Nation. The impressive Gothic architecture evokes comparisons to Notre Dame (despite being built more than half a millennium later). Flying buttresses, spires, and stained glass windows inspire heavenly awe, while statues of modern missionary and civil rights figures such as Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, and Helen Keller ground us in earthly good works. The stained glass “Space Window” includes lunar rock donated by the crew of Apollo 11, reminding us of our small place in the universe. Bring binoculars to scan the gargoyles for a Star Wars surprise, and climb the steps to the towers for panoramic city views. While overseen by the Episcopalian church, all are welcomed.
