A joint Christmas Service (Bethlehem and National Cathedral) was simulcast from the Washington D.C. National Cathedral’s website. There was a small cadre of Knights (Grand Priory USA) who were actually in attendance at the service while a number of other Knights were able to view it live on the internet.
