In England, a 'U-2-Charist'
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good Morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
The Church of England is updating the tradition of celebrating the Eucharist, or communion. Churchgoers symbolically take bread and wine. Only in this case, the service involves rock songs, and it will be called the U2-charist. The service in Lincoln, England, will focus on eliminating poverty - a favorite cause of Bono, lead singer of U2. And the band at the U2-charist will play the group's hits.
It's MORNING EDITION.
