Members of Congress Hold Prayer Vigil on Steps of US Capitol

Members of the Senate and House gathered on the steps of the US Capitol on the evening of January 6 for a prayer vigil, marking one year since supporters of former president Donald Trump attacked the building.

A prayer was offered by Bishop Michael Curry, the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church. Curry’s prayer was followed by song, as well as a moment of silence. Video of the ceremony was published on the Twitter account of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
