On April 3, 2001, The Washington Post reported that "organizers of a religious service for graduating high school seniors in Prince William County were turned away from a Christian events chapel because they wanted to include a rabbi and a Muslim layperson in the service." The director of the chapel said that allowing speakers who were not from the orthodox Catholic tradition would violate the the chapel's charter.
