About the Carving

The people selected to be portrayed in the iconography of the Human Rights Porch were chosen because of their significant, profound, and life-changing actions in the fight for human rights, social justice, civil rights, and the welfare of other human beings.

Completed in 2011, the carvings of Rosa Parks and Mother Teresa join those of Archbishop Oscar Romero, former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, and former Cathedral Dean and Bishop of Washington John T. Walker. Learn more »

In October 2011, the Cathedral Chapter honored the Very Rev. Samuel T. Lloyd III, former Cathedral dean, by dedicating the carving of Mother Teresa “in thanksgiving for the ministry of Samuel T. Lloyd III” for his preaching about Mother Teresa as a champion of compassion and his calling us to a ministry of compassion at the Cathedral.

The Rev. Sam Lloyd, now priest-in-charge at Trinity Church Boston, will give the homily at the Evensong and participate in the dedication of the carving of Mother Teresa.
