Light The City is a one-night evening of prayer and personal invitation, held Saturday night, February 28th, from 8pm to midnight at St. Matthew’s Cathedral. At 8pm, Cardinal Wuerl will celebrate Mass. Following Mass, teams of volunteers will go out into the streets of DC’s Dupont Circle neighborhood to invite passers-by to come into the Cathedral to light a candle and pause peacefully in prayer amidst the busyness of a night in the city. The Cathedral will be filled with candles and music. Light a candle, sit in quiet prayer with the Blessed Sacrament, go to confession, or talk with a priest. We will close the evening with a final blessing at midnight.

8:00pm: Mass with Cardinal Wuerl
