Ash Wednesday 2017: March 1
First posted in 2009 and remodeled in 2016, Daily Roman Catholic Mass in Downtown Washington, DC is for the worker or visitor who wishes to take advantage of weekday and holy day Masses, confessions, opportunities to light candles and other devotions offered by the dozen Roman Catholic churches in the center of the Nation's Capital.
Neither this site, nor its author have any affiliation with any parish or with the Archdiocese of Washington.

Downtown Washington parishes date back to the 1790s and most of these churches were built in the mid-to-late 1800s. Most retain their original charm. Those who want to tour them should note that many are locked unless Mass, confession or a devotion are going on. See the weekly schedules in each church profile to figure out when the buildings are open.
