  • "The interior of St. John the Baptist is defined by an exquisite intimacy and a wash of shimmering gold. Murals of biblical figures stretch to a high ceiling ... During evening prayers, the sound of the choir fills the air as children wander with their parents and an old woman sells candles in the corner. ... (The cathedral) captures a mysticism unique to the Eastern Orthodox tradition." —Washingtonian magazine, August 2005 ******************************************************************************************************************************************* Everything about the church edifice speaks of a rich Russian ecclesiastical heritage. The building is executed in the 17th-century Muscovite-Yaroslav-style. Gilded onion domes, each crowned with a traditional Russian three-barred cross, a belfry, and icons of scenes from the life of St. John the Baptist above the three doors adorn the exterior. Murals and numerous centuries-old icons and an imposing four-tiered iconostasis make up the interior. The regular schedule of services includes a Saturday evening Vigil Service of Vespers and Matins, served in English at 4:00 P.M. and in Church Slavonic at 6:30 P.M., and a Sunday morning Liturgy, served in English at 8 A.M. and Church Slavonic at 10:30 A.M., In addition, the schedule includes special services on the numerous feast days of the Church calendar. These services are held primarily in Church Slavonic, the liturgical language of the Eastern-Slav Churches.
