Easter Day Services
Services on Easter morning will be at 8 & 11 am and require free passes; all passes have been distributed, but there may be a few same-day passes available shortly before the 8 am service only. We encourage you to watch the services online or to attend the Great Vigil of Easter on Saturday evening or Choral Evensong on Sunday afternoon.


The Great Vigil of Easter



Live webcast. Beginning in darkness we hear again the stories of God’s steadfast promise to us, a promise renewed through Holy Baptism, and fulfilled in the new light of Resurrection and the proclamation of Easter. Worshipers are encouraged to bring bells to announce the Resurrection. Learn more »


Washington National Cathedral is called to serve as the spiritual home for the nation. The Cathedral is a national treasure and an architectural feat, a place of stunning beauty built to inspire. Inside, artwork and exhibits tell the American story of faith. Outside, you can explore gardens and grounds shared with three outstanding schools—or peer with gargoyles from the city’s highest point.

This is a place for spiritual enrichment above all, whether you come here for worship, a concert, a pilgrimage, or an insightful program. It is a place open to all.

It is open to you.
