Since 1907, when workmen laid the foundation stone of Washington National Cathedral, this majestic structure has played a vital role in our nation’s history.

Washinton National CathedralThe Washington National Cathedral has long served as a spiritual center where American’s unite to worship and pray, mourn the passing of world leaders, and confront the pressing moral and social issues of the day. On this trip, we will have a tour of the cathedral and get to hear a short talk about the 10,650-pipe great organ followed by a mini-recital. During this special time of the year, we will also see a selection of more than 200 crèches from the cathedral’s extensive nativity sets.
