Washington National Cathedral will host an interfaith prayer service in honor of the people of Japan whose lives were shattered following the earthquake and tsunami.

The service will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday and will mark one month since the disaster hit, organizers said.

Ichiro Fujisaki, the Japanese ambassador to the United States, will participate in the service.

The service is open to the public and no reservations are required. The cathedral is located at 3101 Wisconsin Ave. NW in Washington, D.C.

“We at the National Cathedral join with people across the nation and around the world in continuing to pray for a country sorely tried in the past month, that its people may be strengthened, and that in the fullness of time they may rebuild their lives,” said Cathedral Dean Samuel T. Lloyd III, who will provide the invocation at the prayer service.

The service will also be web cast live on the cathedral’s homepage at nationalcathedral.org.
