National Day of Prayer Event Held in Sycamore Township

Sycamore Township hosted a National Day of Prayer Event on May 5th with help from Pastor David Wells, Saint Paul United Methodist Church, who organized. 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. Pastor Cornett and Sycamore Township Trustees Tom James, Jim LaBarbara and Tom Weidman were joined by local clergy who prayed for our National, State and Local leaders, our community, the military and first responders.

Thank you to all the churches who participated and to the members of the public who joined us in prayer. We are also grateful to the Moeller High School/ Mount Notre Dame High School Band, led by Director Paul Kindt, for providing the music and Chick-fil-A Kenwood Towne Center for donating chicken sandwiches for lunch after the service.
