ABOUT THE SHRINE

ABOUT THE SHRINE The Saint John Paul II National Shrine is first and foremost a place of the worship of the God who became man in Jesus Christ.

National Cathedral should not bestow a blessing on Donald Trump

Washington’s National Cathedral should not bestow a blessing on Donald Trump National : Washington National Cathedral was founded in 1907 and envisioned as a “Westminster Abbey for America,” which, in part, is why it finds itself at the center of controversy about its role in President-elect Donald J.
