On Our Radar:
Peaceful Political Respite
Posted by:  Kara Deniz

St. Joseph's Catholic Church on Capitol Hill was built in 1891 and still stands across the street from the Congressional buildings, a place of worship for our nation’s political leaders and neighborhood residents. The beautiful building with stained glass windows provides tranquility and faith, in a part of town rooted in good intentions, but oftentimes adulterated by political maneuvering. St. Joseph's helps its members focus on helping through volunteering in the community. Members of the administration are among the church's parishioners, but the church itself is a source of comfort for even this non-believer. On weekdays St. Joseph's consists of empty pews, peace and quiet, a reminder that such exists in the political epicenter that is Washington D.C.
