Mayor Moore, who partnered with Bishop Larry Camel of New Birth Missionary Baptist Cathedral to plan and organize the event, stressed the importance of this initiative, “I believe in the power of prayer. I believe that prayer is a crucial element in fighting the violence and other issues that plague and divide our city. Sunday’s gathering is a time when we can all come together. Everyone is invited, from the east and west—all races, all religions. Now is the time that we must stand united as we pray for peace in our city.”
Pastors and community members of all denominations are invited to join Mayor Moore at 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 5 at Borchard Park, 100 N. Michigan Avenue. Citizens are encouraged to bring a lawn chair and enjoy a beautiful afternoon as we unite together in prayer for our city.
