Presiding bishop to participate in Inaguration prayer service

It has been announced that The Rt. Rev'd John Bryson Chane of the Diocese of Washington will give the invocation at the Inauguration Prayer Service in the Washington Cathedral.

Even more exciting is that The Morst Rev'd Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church will offer the closing prayer.

This is "the" official National Prayer Service organized by the Presidential Inaugural Commitee. The service will take place at 10 a.m. Eastern Time (7 a.m. PST) on Wednesday, January 21 at Washington National Cathedral.

The Cathedral will webcast the service live from its Web site.

Isn't it nice to be members of the Established Church? (Sorry, I just couldn't resist. The Devil made me do it.)
