Additional Details:
This Cathedral in the Nation's Capital is dedicated to St. Matthew, the patron Saint of the city's many government workers. This historic church is host to the dignitaries of the government each year in January for the Red Mass. To the right of the Main Altar is the Chapel of St. Joseph, with its sculptured wood statues, overlaid with gold leaf. These were executed in the Italian Tyrol and represent the marriage of our Lady and St. Joseph.
