Warren schedules a local swearing-in

Democrat Elizabeth Warren is being sworn in as a US senator Thursday in Washington, but Massachusetts supporters unable to make it can attend a ceremonial swearing in Saturday at Roxbury Community College.

The oath of office will be admin­istered this weekend by Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, Warren’s former boss at Harvard Law School. Senator Scott Brown, the Republican whom Warren is replacing, ­opposed Kagan’s nomination to the high court.

The ceremony will be at 2 p.m. in the college’s Media Arts Center.

Saturday’s ceremony is the third of three for Warren. She will join her fellow senators in the Senate Chamber shortly ­after noon Thursday for a mass oath-taking administered by Vice President Joe Biden, who also serves as the body’s president. With that, she will officially become a member of the 113th Congress.

Afterward, Biden will reenact the swearing-in individually for each member who wants it in the Old Senate Chamber. The occasion allows for ceremonial family pictures.

An aide said Warren is ­expected to remain in Washington Friday, before returning to Massachusetts for Saturday's ceremony. The senator-elect wanted the public ceremony to celebrate with those who supported her election in November.
