Jindal to be sworn in for second term Monday

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Gov. Bobby Jindal has started his inaugural events, bowing his head in prayer in the traditional church service that precedes the start of a new term.

The prayer service Sunday afternoon at St. Joseph's Cathedral in Baton Rouge included blessings, benedictions and readings from leaders of several faiths. Jindal's family, friends, lawmakers and most statewide elected officials attended. The swearing-in ceremony that officially begins the new term is set for Monday at the Old State Capitol.

The inaugural schedule for Jindal's second term has been upended by the event grabbing more attention, the BCS national football championship game between LSU and Alabama in New Orleans.

The governor shifted the inaugural ball to Sunday night to minimize conflict with the game.
