We are pleased to let you know that tickets for the Commonwealth Prayer Breakfast on January 8, 2020 are now available. As a prior attendee, you are receiving advance notice before the general public.
For more than a half-century, the Commonwealth Prayer Breakfast has been held on the day when the General Assembly convenes and the Governor delivers the State of the Commonwealth address. There could be no more fitting start to such an important day than to acknowledge our dependence on our Creator.
Chief Judge Roger Gregory, from the United States Circuit Court for the Fourth Circuit, will be the guest speaker. Raised in Petersburg, Judge Gregory is the only federal appeals judge in history to be nominated by two presidents of different parties (Bill Clinton and George W. Bush). He is highly regarded for his fairness and wisdom. Come hear his inspiring words of civility and reconciliation that our Commonwealth and our nation need in these troubled times.
Our nation is divided today, perhaps more than at any other time in recent memory. Yet, through faith there is much that unites us and much to be thankful for. As the new year begins, hundreds of Virginians will gather at this Prayer Breakfast to break bread, enjoy fellowship, and seek God’s guidance.
The Commonwealth Prayer Breakfast will be on Wednesday, January 8, 2020, at 7:00 a.m. in the Greater Richmond Convention Center Ballroom. Individual tickets are $40. Please consider hosting a table of 10 for $400. As a table host, you are encouraged to invite elected officials, business leaders, pastors, students, and others from your community. You may purchase tickets by credit card online at CommonwealthPrayerBreakfast2020.eventbrite.com/. For additional information, please contact CommonwealthPrayerBreakfast@gmail.com.
We look forward to seeing you on January 8, as we pray for wisdom, guidance, and strength for our public servant leaders during the coming year.
