A-list celebrities may be staying away from Donald J. Trump’s inauguration on Friday, but a large number of religious leaders will take part in the ceremony, reading Scripture and offering prayers for his administration. Six religious leaders — including a rabbi, a cardinal, and a diverse group of Protestant preachers — will participate, more than for any previous president, said Jim Bendat, an author and historian of inaugural ceremonies. Each will have 60 to 90 seconds to offer a reading or lead a prayer.
- The Rev. Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham
- Pastor Paula White, a Florida televangelist
- Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Detroit’s Great Faith Ministries
- Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership
- Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York
- Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center
None of the prophetic voices within the American Charismatic tradition who predicted Trump’s win are included. For a complete list see:
