Hurray! And thanks be to God.
The Washington National Cathedral, closed for restoration since a 5.8 earthquake struck the region on Aug. 23, is open for services and tours again..
Though ongoing repairs from fallen stonework and other damage are expected to take years and cost at least $15 million, the Gothic cathedral reopened Sunday and has scheduled a series of special events this week including an interfaith concert and requiem mass for the feast of all souls.
