St. Patrick's In The City

The present St. Patrick's was built around 1900, but the parish is the oldest in Washington, dating to the 1790s. In 1824, Ann Mattingly, a parishioner and widow of a DC mayor, was miraculously cured of cancer. Since then, the novena prayers that are believed to have effected Mrs. Mattingly's miracle cure are recited every Thursday after 12:10 pm Mass. This 2005 photo was taken before an office building overshadowed the church.

One of the old stained-glass windows has the faces of real people, probably members of the donor family.
