The National Cathedral is moving most of its planned Sept. 11-related events to the Kennedy Center because of damage from Wednesday’s crane accident.

The events, all part of the Cathedral’s “A Call to Compassion,” a weekend of commemorative events, include concerts by military musical groups, a speech by President Obama and performances by Patti Labelle, Alan Jackson and Denyce Graves.

In addition, the Cathedral’s planned interfaith prayer vigil scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Sunday has been moved to Washington Hebrew Congregation at 3935 Macomb St. NW.

Update: Passes are still available for Friday’s concert; for ticketing information, or if have passes and need information about the new location and policies, call 202-537-2300.
