Springfield Mayor's Prayer Breakfast To Be Staged By Private Groups This Year


The annual Springfield Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast will be held again this year… but it won’t be organized by the mayor’s office. 

 

Instead, a coalition of four private groups will stage the event.  Mayor Mike Houston halted the city’s direct involvement in the event last year following a complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation… which objected to the use of city resources for a religious event.

 

This year, the prayer breakfast is co-sponsored by The Faith Coalition for the Common Good, The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce, The Greater Springfield Interfaith Association, and The Ministerial Alliance of Springfield and Vicinity.  Those groups say bringing people of various faiths together strengthens the community. 

 

The prayer breakfast is set for Tuesday, November 19th at 7:30am at the Springfield Hilton.
