Cathedral Of St. Matthew The Apostle Reviews & Ratings
The outside of the building was breathtaking. It was so intricate and beautifully ornate! I really wish that I could have gone inside on our short weekend trip we went here and I’ve never seen a church of such stature I was hoping to go inside, but I just don’t think it’s adequate to charge $18 per person! Thank the good Lord who supported these efforts made the shrine is free.
We just had our wedding here with Monsignor Jameson. They staff was very experienced and communication was great. It looks amazing and is very large. There’s not really any parking so be prepared to use a nearby parking garage.
“The Mother Church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington has also “celebrated the lives" of many of "Our Nations” Esteemed leaders, & noteworthy individuals. On this day world re-noun journalists Cokie Roberts’ Mass was held here. The remains of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 also rested here. This historic Cathedral is a must see when in DC. The architecture & history are abundant in the “soul” of America’s Capital .
An iconic, solemn and historic church. The architecture and art work is truly amazing. Even if one doesn't have the time or inclination to attend mass, it's worth taking the time to tour this beautiful church.
This has to be the most amazing historic church I’ve ever visited, the energy of this place captured me as soon as I walked through the doors. Immaculately kept up. I was able to sit and let my thoughts flow freely, others around me doing the same. No one bothering anyone. I made a small donation and lit a few candles for family and friends. I will always come visit this church whenever I’m in town. Just beautiful ♥️♥️♥️
