Washington National Cathedral: The Spirit of Apollo
Join the National Air and Space Museum in commemorating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 8 with an evening at Washington National Cathedral.
The evening’s speakers, including Apollo 8 astronaut Jim Lovell and Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church Michael Curry, will celebrate that moment of unity and the spiritual meaning of exploration embodied by the first flight to the Moon. A dramatic choral performance will recreate the famous Christmas Eve Broadcast. Apollo 8 challenged our understanding of human limitations. Fifty years later, we come together to honor the Spirit of Apollo.
