The Cathedral of St. Philip is honored to have been asked to host the Inauguration Day Prayer Service for the Governor-Elect of Georgia, Brian Kemp, on Monday, January 14, 2019; and I am glad to have agreed to host prayer on that special day. However, with the need for very close security, only ticketed guests and cathedral entity staff members will have access to the building that morning. Interested citizens and parishioners can watch the service televised on the Georgia Public Broadcasting network. The wonderful Cathedral Preschool and Cathedral Book Store will both be closed.
The Cathedral of St. Philip, a “House of Prayer For All People,” hosts this service as a witness of our continuing prayer for all in political office, and certainly prayer for the highest political office in the state of Georgia. This is exactly the sort of thing that a cathedral for the city, and for the state, ought to be doing. We serve. Pray for us, and for the governor-elect, and for the state of Georgia!
