Join us as we're finally able to welcome Dr. Brené Brown to the Canterbury Pulpit at Washington National Cathedral! (This event was rescheduled from October).
Immediately following the 1115 service, Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde will host Dr. Brown, best-selling author, for a conversation on courage and vulnerability. With Bishop Budde, Dr. Brown will explore her latest book, which offers us a new lens on the contempt and anger permeating our culture and provides the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other.
Doors will open at 10:30 a.m., and the service will start at 11:15 a.m. This event is expected to end at 1:30 p.m.
PASSES ARE REQUIRED FOR ENTRY.
