[ARCHIVED] National Day of Prayer Hosted by Mayor Porter and Councilwoman Fairclough

On Thursday, May 1, 2014, from 10-11:30am, Mayor Jeff Porter, Councilwoman Patricia Fairclough and members of the Homestead community, will convene with local pastors and religious leaders in observance of the National Day of Prayer. Community leaders and their constituents are invited to a gathering in a non-denominational spirit of unity about faith and the spiritual health of our nation in the City of Homestead’s William F. Dickinson Community Center located at 1601 N. Krome Ave.

Nation Day of Prayer 2014

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. It is expected that in 2014, Millions will observe the 63rd Anniversary of the National Day of Prayer.

“The National Day of Prayer is a vital part of our heritage. Since the first call to prayer in 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation, the call to prayer has continued through our history,” said Mayor Porter.
Mayor Porter along with Councilwoman Fairclough organized this meeting with the intent of bringing together the community in an effort to stand in solidarity and pray for the prosperity of our City. As space is very limited, if you are interested in attending the National Prayer Day event, please contact Danays Torres, Assistant to Mayor and Council, as soon as possible and RSVP at 305-224-4433.
