MAESA Episcopal Schools Day Celebration Services 2021

Washington National Cathedral: Wednesday, October 6, 2021, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. hosted by Beauvoir, the National Cathedral Elementary School. Because of the uncertainty of the availability of vaccines for students under 12 yrs. old, we are working to stream the worship service and include a smaller than usual number of students from all of our schools. We hope to announce a date in the late winter 2022 for a full-scale Episcopal schools celebration and worship service, and are in touch with our school chaplains about these developments.
