D.C. St. Francis de Sales to celebrate patronal feast with Missa Cantata

On Sunday, January 29, at 10:30 am, a Missa Cantata will be celebrated at Washington’s St. Francis de Sales Church for the feast day of its patron saint.


A visit to any church on its patronal feast day, accompanied by the recitation of one Our Father and the Creed, is enriched with a plenary indulgence. Note that all plenary indulgences require sacramental confession, Communion, prayer for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff, and the absence of any attachment to sin whether mortal or venial.

St. Francis de Sales Church is located near the corner of Rhode Island Avenue NE and 20th Street NE, about a 30-minute walk from Catholic University. Parking is available in the lot at the end of St. Francis de Sales Place a half block east of 20th Street, adjacent to the convent and school buildings. Street parking is also available; motorists are advised to heed posted signs. The nearest Metrorail stations are Rhode Island Avenue and Brookland/CUA on the Red Line. Metrobus provides service on Rhode Island Avenue.
