  • Father Jack Hurley and the cathedral is like a second home. Forever grateful to be part of this wonderful parish. Thank you and god bless you. Together with the Catholics in the Capital radio show WMET 1160 and the extraordinary host Christina Cox this is the right way to be. Forever grateful and fortunate to have met these wonderful individuals. 🙏❤️🙏
  • Beautiful Cathedral. For history buffs, this is where the funeral for President Kennedy was celebrated, and they have a marker on the floor remembering that event. A few blocks from the White House. Some of the nicest images of the Evangelists I've seen, and use these images often when talking about them.
  • St. Matthew's Cathedral is a beautiful example of Catholic architectural splendor. The multitude of chapels and bursting array of iconography is not to be missed. I only wish there were readily available guides for visitors. If there were, I missed them.
  • A magnificent place of worship and prayer. Dad, my brother Howie and I used to sing in the choir in the early 1970's. Back then, it was an all-male choir. We sang the high Masses by Handel, Haydn, Mozart. Howie and I were in the soprano section, and Dad was a tenor. Thank you Mom and Dad for the beautiful life you gave us...
  • Loved the Mass at 5:30 pm. Nice Chorus. Great place for prayer.
