$5M goes to National Cathedral repair from the 2011 earthquake than inflicted $20 million in damage. Citing the Lilly family’s long support for the National Cathedral, N. Clay Robbins, president and CEO of the Lilly Endowment:
Eli Lilly, one of the endowment’s founders, and his wife Ruth were devoted to the National Cathedral and provided major support for the cathedral’s northwest St. Peter Tower decades ago.
Rev Francis H. Wade, interim dean:
The cathedral’s mission has remained intact … and that is to serve as the spiritual home of the nation.
I noticed from the cathedral web site, a lot of video, plus the order of worship from yesterday’s liturgy. Still on Roman Missal 1, I see. Using the James Moore Psalm 34 refrain for the Fraction Rite. Two choral pieces from the Renaissance. “Modern” organ instrumentals. Any reader ever worship there?
