Katrina National Day of Prayer

National Day of Prayer
By  | 

Some churches are not going to be joining in President Bush's call for a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance today for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Some say they've already had their services. Others are upset over the government's sluggish response to disaster.

Still, many houses of worship plan to take part. The president himself will be attending a service at the National Cathedral in Washington.

Congregations across Texas, which is supporting tens of thousands of evacuees, are preparing special prayers.

Interdenominational services are set for state capitals around the country. And many Roman Catholic churches are joining in. Catholics have a strong presence along the Gulf Coast and many dioceses have suffered extensive damage.
