Neil Gorsuch will be sworn in as the nation's newest Supreme Court judge this Monday in two ceremonies, President Donald Trump announced on Friday.

In the first, Chief Justice John Roberts will administer the oath of office to Gorsuch at the Supreme Court during a private ceremony scheduled for 9 a.m., The Washington Examiner reports.

The second ceremony will be officiated by Justice Anthony Kennedy – who once employed Gorsuch as a clerk – in a public ceremony at the White House at 11 a.m.

In a statement released Friday following a Senate confirmation of Gorsuch by a 54-45 vote, Trump said:

"Judge Gorsuch's confirmation process was one of the most transparent and accessible in history, and his judicial temperament, exceptional intellect, unparalleled integrity, and record of independence makes him the perfect choice to serve on the nation's highest court.

"As a deep believer in the rule of law, Judge Gorsuch will serve the American people with distinction as he continues to faithfully and vigorously defend our Constitution."
