From Virginia-

Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS) announces that the Dedication and Consecration Service of its Immanuel Chapel and a special Choral Evensong will be streamed live on Tuesday, Oct. 13. Streaming for the consecration begins at 10 a.m. and for Choral Evensong at 4 p.m.

The Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schori, the 26th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, will be the celebrant for the consecration. The Most Reverend Justin Welby, the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury, will deliver the sermon during this historic event in the 192nd year in the life of the Seminary.

The ceremony is expected to draw approximately a thousand invited guests to campus including church leaders, alumni, friends, chapel artisans, and builders. The event marks the official completion and blessing of Immanuel Chapel. The Chapel, designed by New York-based Robert A.M. Stern Architects, was built to replace the Seminary's 1881 Chapel that was destroyed by fire in October 2010.
