I live in the suburb of WASHINGTON DC in a small historic town of Vienna VA- a friendly town enjoyed all year round by people of all ages... About 4 times a year, in summer and fall, I enjoy walks around the city of the DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, stopping by ST MATTHEWS CATHEDRAL on RHODE ISLAND AVE to hear the 11:30 or 1:00 SUNDAY MASS, then treating myself to light lunches in restaurants nearby... The cathedral is the place where the family of PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY attended mass during those times they were in WASHINGTON DC. It’s where PRESIDENT KENNEDY’s funeral was celebrated. I love this cathedral! It’s the first one I knew and went to when I arrived in Washington DC in 1970. Upon entering the cathedral, I feel so holy and pious. I feel like GOD IS THERE SITTING NEXT TO ME THAT I CAN WHISPER TO HIM HOW I FEEL AND HOW I THANK HIM FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS BESTOWED ON ME AND MY FAMILY..I feel so peaceful! Eveytime I have visitors from MANILA, I always take them there because it’s like going to the MANILA CATHEDRAL and to ST. AUGUSTINE CHURCH in INTRAMUROS, PHILIPINES...
Father Jack Hurley and the cathedral is like a second home. Forever grateful to be part of this wonderful parish. Thank you and god bless you. Together with the Catholics in the Capital radio show WMET 1160 and the extraordinary host Christina Cox this is the right way to be. Forever grateful and fortunate to have met these wonderful individuals. 🙏❤️🙏
A magnificent place of worship and prayer. Dad, my brother Howie and I used to sing in the choir in the early 1970's. Back then, the choir was all-male. Howie and I were part of the soprano section comprised of elementary school kids. Dad was a tenor. We sang the high Masses by Handel, Haydn, Mozart. Thank you Mom and Dad for the beautiful life you gave us...
It was near my hostel. The architecture was fine, the inticate rosettas caught my attention. The small chapels was a good spot to be alone...
Beautiful Cathedral. For history buffs, this is where the funeral for President Kennedy was celebrated, and they have a marker on the floor remembering that event. A few blocks from the White House. Some of the nicest images of the Evangelists I've seen, and use these images often when talking about them.
