Washington, D.C. — The historic historic church of the resurrection, a small, two-story building at 4200 Park Row, will be re-dedicated to St. Joseph in a ceremony Saturday that will mark the restoration of the historic structure, a move the Episcopal Church said Friday.
The restoration of 4200 Parks Row, formerly known as the Church of St. Mary, was initiated by the Episcopal Diocese of Washington.
The diocese has committed to $2 million toward the project, which is the largest restoration of a church in the Episcopal church.
The Episcopal Church will provide funding for the restoration.
Bishop Thomas F. Ryan of the Diocese said the restoration will mark “the first step in a long process” to restore 4200 parks, a building that sits on what was once the site of the Episcopal General Convention Hall and the historic Episcopal Church building that served as the Episcopal Cathedral.
In the past, restoration projects have involved the work of volunteers from the Episcopal community.
However, this project is the first restoration of any of the churches in the diocese.
“It is a tremendous honor to have the restoration project that is underway underway in the Dioceses headquarters and with the support of the community, which I know is very supportive of the work being done here,” Ryan said in a statement.
“It is an honor to serve as the spiritual leader of the dioceseconsultation team.”

The Diocese announced the project in a press release Friday.
The Church of Mary, the second oldest Episcopal church in D.O., is being restored.
The D.S.C.’s Board of Trustees approved the project a year ago, with $1.5 million from the DiOCESes capital fund.
The Church of Saint Joseph was the first church to be dedicated in the historic Diocese, which was founded in 1832 and has a history dating back to the 1700s.
Its church was built in the early 18th century on the site where the Diaconate Church was once located.
The church is also a historic landmark and a prominent landmark in the area.
The church is currently on the National Register of Historic Places and has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service.
In December, the DIC issued a formal request for proposals for the project to help raise the money to restore the historic structures.
A formal proposal is expected in early February.
