Thanks to a reader for sending Bishop Mariann Opens the Garden for Weddings during Shutdown:
“The Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, Episcopal Bishop of Washington, offers the Bishop’s Garden on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral to couples whose outdoor weddings on federal property in Washington D. C. are threatened due to the federal government shutdown.
“The shutdown’s impact on people’s lives is incalculable, and we’re all struggling to find ways to support our neighbors,” said Bishop Budde. “As one modest gesture, we invite those whose outdoor wedding plans were unexpectedly changed to consider the Bishop’s Garden as an alternate site, and we offer it to them free of charge.”
For more information, please call Ms. Cheryl Wilburn in the Bishop’s office by calling 202-537-6543.”
