2017 Mayor’s Interfaith Prayer Breakfast

More than 570 people attended the 44th Annual Mayor’s Interfaith Prayer Breakfast. We were pleased to once again be working with Mayor Terry Tornek to bring the community together for a morning of community, breakfast, and fellowship. Rev. Marlene Pomeroy provided the Invocation and Blessing of Food. This year’s Keynote Speaker was John E. Kobara, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, California Community Foundation.  He spoke to the attendees on the theme of “Comforting the Afflicted and Afflicting the Comfortable” (the text of the speech can be found here).  The Eliot Arts Jazz Combo and Vocal Ensemble performed “America The Beautiful” and played music throughout the Breakfast.  The Breakfast finished with a Closing Prayer of All Faiths.
