Spring Prayer Luncheon

Thurs­day, May 2, 2024 12:00pm‑1:00pm

This event aims to bring togeth­er mem­bers of our diverse com­mu­ni­ty to share in a spir­it of uni­ty, under­stand­ing and mutu­al respect. The Prayer Lun­cheon will fea­ture prayers from var­i­ous faith tra­di­tions, fos­ter­ing a sense of inclu­siv­i­ty and har­mo­ny among us.

A com­mu­ni­ty pres­ence at this gath­er­ing will con­tribute sig­nif­i­cant­ly to the rich­ness and diver­si­ty of our shared expe­ri­ence. To stream­line our plan­ning process and ensure we are able to accom­mo­date every­one, please RSVP by April 22nd.

Lunch will be provided.
