Cathedral requires advance free passes to Presiding Bishop seating liturgy
[ENS] The seating of the 26th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Nevada Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, will take place at the 11:00 a.m. All Saints service on November 5, at Washington National Cathedral, the day after her investiture.
The service is open to the public but passes will be required. This is a recent change in the cathedral's policy about this service.
To request passes, please send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:
Installation 2006 Washington National Cathedral Massachusetts & Wisconsin Avenues NW Washington, DC 20016
Please include the number of passes you are requesting (limit of two per request). No group requests will be honored; no e-mail or faxed requests will be honored. Passes will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Instructions for accessing the cathedral will be mailed with the passes.
Jefferts Schori will preside and preach at the service, which will include formally seating her in the Presiding Bishop's cathedra, or official chair.
General-admission tickets to the November 4 investiture are due to be sent out from the Episcopal Church Center later this week or early next week.
