    Founded in 1930, as the Russian Church of St Nicholas, the parish was originally located on Riggs Pl in northwest Washington, DC. The first pastor was Rev John Dorosh who lived above the chapel. In 1934 the Dormition Sisterhood and the Nation’s Capitol “R” Club were formed. In 1935, the parish moved to 1708 Church St, also in northwest Washington just a few blocks from Riggs Pl. In 1938, Fr Paul Lutov replaced the retiring Rev Dorosh. Fr Lutov helped to introduce English into parish services to ensure that the Word of God could be understood by everyone. After WW II, Fr Lutov left his post as rector although he remained active in the parish. St Nicholas’s rectors from 1948 to 1951 were Monk-Priest John (Morozov) and Fr Nicholas Makovelosky. The parish had grown to 100 members by about 1950. In 1951 Metropolitan Leonty blessed the newly purchased site at Massachusetts Ave and Edmunds St, our current location. In 1955 after the death of Bishop Jonah (rector), Archpriest Arkady Moiseye...

    The original parishwas founded in 1930 as the Russian Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas. The liturgical life of the parish was held in various houses until it could purchase its own property. In 1949 the Synod of Bishops of the then-Metropolia, named the parish to be the National War Memorial Shrine. This led to a national campaign to erect a monumental church in the capital of the United States. In 1951 the property upon which the current cathedral stands was purchased. The substructure (basement) of the cathedral was completed in 1954 and was used for church services until the superstructure was completed in late 1962. In 1988 a bell tower was erected, commemorating the millennium of Christianity in Russia.

    The cathedral architecture is based on the 12th century St. Demetrius Cathedral of Vladimir, Russia. Beginning in 1991, dedicated iconographers from Moscow led by Alexander Maskalionov wrote icons throughout the navein the traditional style. This work was completed in 1994.

    The cathedral is at 3500 Massachusetts Ave NW at the corner of Edmund Street, in the District of Columbia.
