WASHINGTON, D.C.: Cathedral State Day will honor Alaska

The state of Alaska will be honored at the August 20, 11 a.m., service at Washington National Cathedral.

Invited guests include the Venerable Anna Frank, the Episcopal Church's first Native American woman priest. Frank serves on the staff of Bishop Mark MacDonald of Alaska. She will be reading the Gospel in her native language, then in English. Elected officials will also be present, and Alaskans will serve as bearers of communion elements and gifts to the poor. All Alaskans and friends are cordially invited to attend the observance, scheduled as follows:

11 a.m. -- Alaska Major State Day Worship Service
