A memorial service for Jack Kemp will be held Friday, May 8, at 2 pm at Washington National Cathedral. Seating for the service begins at 1 pm, and attendees should plan on arriving as close to 1 pm as possible.

A tribute will be offered by Charles Colson, and a pastoral prayer by the Reverend Alistair Begg, senior pastor of Parkside Church in Bainbridge, Ohio. The sermon will be delivered by Dr. Robert Norris, senior pastor of Fourth Presbyterian Church of Bethesda, Maryland. The Howard University Choir will sing at the service. Cathedral Dean Samuel T. Lloyd III will welcome the congregation, and Episcopal Bishop of Washington John Bryson Chane will offer the invocation and benediction.

The service is closed to cameras. Since all Cathedral schools are in session, no surface parking will be available on the grounds.
