Community Prayer Summit on Saturday, September 15, 2012
(Long Island, NY) Islip Town Clergy from Different Houses of Worship Call on Residents to Join In a Community Prayer Summit on Saturday, September 15, 2012, at Roberto Clemente Park, Brentwood.
With all the many blessings we have from living in the Town of Islip, a coalition of religious leaders of diverse faiths want to take the time to pray with our communities and for those who lead us. In the face of tremendous deterioration of our quality of life including mounting unemployment, increasing poverty, crime, and gang activity, this collective of clergy has concluded that there will be no impact without a healthy community of faith.
The power of prayer will be used to highlight the positive impact that people can have when they are united. Leaders of diverse faiths will lead prayers for the peace and prosperity of the town. The location for this event has been the site of gang violence in the past, and the clergy have chosen it for this reason, to spread the message of peace and unity despite our differences in faith, race and ethnicity.
