  • beauty incredible in its interior, which is not visible from the outside, since it seems very simple to view, worth visit and admire the different chapels and a beautiful image of Mother Teresa and the memory of father Francisco passage in 2015.

  • This is the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Washington DC. Building was built more than 100 years ago is still beautiful and 聳立, so its presence. Interior of the Church is worth seeing very high artistry with lavish decorations.

  • Beautiful, peaceful, classic old cathedral. Glad I got a chance to finally visit. Nice place to pass a few minutes to appreciate its beauty or escape the hustle and bustle of Washington. Please note the hours listed via Google maps are the rectory hours, not the church hours. I learned the hard way. I showed up at 730 and the church was closed. I wasn't happy. I submitted a correction for the times, but Google can't seem to verify my correction which comes straight from their web page by choosing "about us", then "location, hours and directions".
  • 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.
  • Don't know how to rate a church ... It was very godly. Minus 1 star for the horde of homeless people out front at all times of day.
  • Great catholic church!! Offers sunday mass in spanish
  • This church was absolutely gorgeous! I felt angelic sitting in this beyond beautiful church! Stunning architecture! I will never forget this beautiful church!
