The Cathedral of the Pines is a nationally recognized memorial dedicated to the memory and honor of all Americans who serve the nation. In search of peace we are open to the public as a place of spiritual, cultural, and environmental appreciation.
Situated on a hilltop with a panoramic view of historic Mount Monadnock, the Cathedral of the Pines is a breathtaking open-air cathedral and meeting space on 236 acres of pristine New Hampshire forest. Our grounds are home to many historic monuments erected to honor the brave American men and women—both military and civilian who have served our country.
We welcome visitors from all over the world to participate in our events, to explore our extraordinary sanctuary grounds, meditate in our outdoor chapels and gardens, and to learn our history.
As a B-17 bomber pilot in World War II, Second Lieutenant Sanderson (Sandy) Sloane made the ultimate sacrifice for his country when his plane was shot down over Germany in 1944. To honor their beloved son and all the men and women who gave their lives in service to this great nation, Sibyl and Douglas Sloane III founded the Cathedral of the Pines the following year.
At that time Dr. and Mrs. Sloane envisioned a place where people of all faiths would come together in the spirit of unity and mutual respect. It was their the hope that interfaith understanding and appreciation would help pave the way to world peace.
In the 21st century the Cathedral of the Pines continues to honor the Sloane’s dream of a “cathedral without borders” with activities and events that celebrate their original vision.
