"Greek Orthodox Cathedral"
Often unnoticed because of its proximity to the Washington National Cathedral, Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral is one of the largest halls of worship in the city. DC's Greek community has been worshiping at this Orthodox church for generations. Saint Sophia, or "Hagia Sophia," as it is known, hosts an annual Greek Festival on its grounds, offering traditional food and a lively, yet spiritual atmosphere. Celebrations during the Easter season are very special events.

This gorgeous church is a city landmark, tucked away among lovely townhouses in Georgetown and just down the street from Georgetown University. A plaque on the front gate proclaims the church as John F. Kennedy's place of worship during his short tenure as president. The white-columned interior is elegant but not ostentatious, filled with light streaming through enormous stained-glass murals. For either group worship or solitary reflection, the church is a wonderful sanctuary from Georgetown's busy streets.
