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.
