Washington National Cathedral
Washington National Cathedral seeks to be a catalyst for spiritual harmony in our nation, reconciliation among faiths, and compassion in the world.
Since the celebrated moment in 1907 when workmen laid the foundation stone of Washington National Cathedral, the majestic structure has played a vital role in the history of the United States. The Cathedral has long served as a grand spiritual centre where Americans unite to worship and pray, mourn the passing of world leaders, and confront the pressing moral and social issues of the day.
- Interfaith Programs
The Cathedral actively pursues interfaith dialogue and collaboration, particularly among the three Abrahamic faiths
- Christian-Muslim Summit
Those summits are planned interfaith dialogues on reconciliation, the first of which was hosted by the Cathedral in March 2010 as part of its commitment to being a leader in convening people of all faiths to examine and respond to important issues in the world. The goals of the Summit are to promote understanding and reconciliation between Christianity and Islam and to discuss ways in which leaders from both traditions can proactively engage their government leaders, and the community at large, to become active partners in public diplomacy for peace and reconciliation. The fourth and final session of the Christian-Muslim Summit took place in Tehran, Iran in 2016.
