The Cathedral of the Pines is a place of spiritual nourishment for people of all faiths. It is also a national memorial to patriotic sacrifice, a physical declaration that we will not forget those men and women who have served our country. The sense of peace ingenerated by the tall pines that form its natural surroundings is conducive to prayer and meditation. Its peaceful garden and walkways contain serene, inspirational landscapes for prayer and meditation. The NSDCH memorial marker can be found on the tall masonry at the top far right.
