  • The Catholic Cathedral of DC, seat of the Archbishop. St Matthew is a beautiful red brick Roman Catholic Church. It has the distinction of being famous for having conducted the requiem mass for President Kennedy. Inside you can find a round marker on the floor that designates where JFK's coffin lied during the service. The Cathedral itself is gorgeous inside. The chapel dedicated to St Francis of Assisi is one of the most beautiful of any church anywhere in the world. So peaceful and beautiful inside, definitely worth a visit to take in the art, architecture, and pay your respects.
