Community Prayer Breakfast on April 30 by County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper

There are many moments from my time in Washington, D.C. that I will never forget, but one event stands out above many others. I had the privilege twice of attending the National Prayer Breakfast hosted annually. Men and women of different political parties, religions, and cultures all came together to honor our religious differences and common humanity. It was an impactful gathering, and a moment I cherish.

It was in this spirit that I decided to organize a Community Prayer Breakfast in Erie County. Thanks to the help of volunteers, we have organized a program that features speakers of diverse religious practices and backgrounds. 

I invite you to join members of the Erie community this Saturday as we celebrate and honor all faiths. I am pleased to announce that world-renowned author and activist Sister Joan Chittister will be delivering the keynote address, and speaking about the common good. It is now more important than ever that we embrace collaboration and work for what benefits all.  

Join us at 9:30 at the Bayfront Convention Center on Saturday, April 30, for a morning of celebration and community. To make your reservation, call 451.6333.
