Some of the clergy, all of whom were announced as participants on Thursday, supported Trump during his campaign for president, such as prosperity gospel preachers Bishop Harry Jackson of Maryland and the Rev. Darrell Scott of Ohio.
Several come from the Washington area, including Priest Narayanachar L. Dialakote from the Sri Siva Vishnu Temple in Lanham, Imam Mohamed Magid from the All Dulles Area Muslim Society Center in Sterling, and Jesse Singh, the chair of the Sikh Associations of Baltimore.
Others come from churches across the country. Christian denominations represented at the jam-packed prayer service include the Catholic Church, the Greek Orthodox Church, evangelical churches and several leaders of the Episcopal Church, which hosts the inaugural service every four years in its seat, Washington National Cathedral.
Relatives of two of the most influential American religious leaders in history will participate: Alveda King, who is a niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and an antiabortion activist, and Cissie Graham Lynch, a granddaughter of evangelist Billy Graham.
Not everyone asked to participate in the service this year said yes — one rabbi wrote in The Post this week about declining the invitation because of his opposition to Trump’s values. The service will include two Jewish clergy: Cantor Mikhail Manevich from the Washington Hebrew Congregation, a neighbor of Washington National Cathedral, and Rabbi Fred Raskind from Temple Bet Yam in St. Augustine, Fla.
The cantor and the imam’s role in the service will be the call to prayer, which they will lead along with the Rev. Canon Rosemarie Duncan from the cathedral. The rabbi, three pastors and Sajid Tarar, a Muslim man from Baltimore who prayed for Trump onstage at the Republican National Convention, will read biblical passages.
Others will read prayers for peace, the nation, those who govern and those who serve. There will not be a sermon.
