An All Saints Day Pilgrimage will be taken to Washington National Cathedral Oct. 31-Nov. 3. On Nov. 1 the pilgrimage will include the Sunday morning service with reserved seating in the Cathedral, followed by a tour of the Cathedral's needlepoint collection (kneelers and wall hangings), followed by the annual U.S. Marine Corps anniversary service. The Marine Band, which played at both the Cathedral's cornerstone laying in 1907 and its completion in 1990, will perform during this service with the Cathedral organ. A Prayer Pilgrimage through the building and on its grounds will be Nov. 2, led by the Rev. Frederick W. Schmidt, canon educator. Other features of this pilgrimage trip will include a play at Ford's Theatre and entrance to the National Gallery of Art's special exhibit ``Van Gogh's Van Goghs.''

Washington National Cathedral, although Anglican, is a national house of prayer for people of all faiths and beliefs. This pilgrimage tour is open to all.
