Important Information

Our Centennial

2016 is the Guild's 100th year and a Centennial Campaign is planned to celebrate this milestone.  A "Wish List" of improvements to the grounds is being formulated by our Garden Committee and ways to further endow the landscape with lasting gifts will be part of our year-long program.  Flower Mart 2016 will use this theme to "kick off" our centennial of fun, interesting and informative events.  This website and social media outlets will continue to update our friends and donors with ways in which they can be part of this historic initiative on behalf of all 59 acres of the Cathedral's gardens, grounds and woodlands.



Herb Cottage Gifts

Our Herb Cottage Gift Shop closed at the end of June, but we will return as a vendor at the St. Alban's School Christmas House Tour Boutique - December 4th and 5th.  Visit our booth for holiday and specialty items, including live amaryllis, boxwood kissing balls, our signature jams and jellies, and more! We look forward to seeing you there!

New from Herb Cottage Gifts:  Boxed gift soaps in lavender, lemon verbena, and wildflower. Great stocking stuffer!

Tea and Tour Schedule

The month of December will feature "Angels High and Low" tours - perfect for the holiday season. Enjoy an in-depth tour of the Cathedral and afternoon tea in the tower - Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Reserve now: Tea and Tour Reservations  or visit our Tea and Tour page for more information - including dates of specialty tours.

Who We Are

Florence Brown Bratenahl, wife of the Dean of the Cathedral, formed All Hallows Guild in 1916 to provide for “the care and beautification of the cathedral close.” The name hallows the land on which the Cathedral was built, the life of Bishop Satterlee, and gifts in memory of loved ones.

Today, All Hallows Guild has over 500 members and a 30-member governing board of directors which meets monthly, September through June. It submits an annual report to the PECF Board of Trustees and is part of the audited financial statement of the Protestant Episcopal Cathedral Foundation of the District of Columbia.
