Tower Talks from Washington National Cathedral

Building the Cathedral with Patrick Plunkett

June 17, 2020

In this week's episode of Tower Talks, we're talking to Patrick Plunkett, one of the stone carvers who quite literally helped build the Cathedral. Patrick joined the carving crew at the Cathedral in 1975 and stayed there until its completion in 1990, working on some of the Cathedral’s most prominent architectural features under the supervision of master carvers Roger Morigi and his successor, Vincent Palumbo. The stories he has to tell are equal parts fascinating, hilarious and personal, and it was truly a pleasure to get to speak to him. We hope you enjoy this week's episode of Tower Talks!
