.- Archbishop Alfred Hughes of New Orleans will lead an interfaith service in praying for the renewal of the New Orleans community and for those who died when Hurricane Katrina struck in August.

The interfaith service will be Nov. 27 at 3 p.m. at St. Louis Cathedral. Clergy from the Episcopal, Lutheran, African Methodist Episcopal, Greek Orthodox, Jewish, Muslim and Hindu traditions will join him.

New Orleans is still in the initial stages of reconstruction after Hurricane Katrina hit the city and the entire Gulf Coast at the end of August.

Congregants will join the clergy to meditate and reflect and to remember those who died in the hurricane. They will also give thanks to God for those people who saved lives and be invited to pray for the renewal of the community in faith in God.

The service will include readings from the Bible, the Koran and other sacred writings, Latin, Greek Orthodox and Jewish chants, the Muslim call to prayer and Christian and Gospel hymns.

People of all faiths are invited to attend.
