Building on a successful first outing last year, South Pasadena will hold its second annual Prayer Breakfast, “Neighbor to Neighbor,” on Tuesday, February 21, at Holy Family Catholic Church. Tickets are now on sale at www.sopasprayerbreakfast.org.
Dr. Lucy Jones of Cal Tech, known to many Southern Californians as our very own earthquake guru, is the founder of the Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science and Society, with a mission to foster the understanding and application of scientific information in the creation of more resilient communities. She is not only the premier earthquake expert in the US, but also passionate about planning for recovery beyond disaster events, and will address the breakfast about the need for building social capital in our community.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Jones with us, and excited to see the breakfast taking shape. We invite the entire community to attend,” said Rev. Lincoln Skinner, Senior Pastor at Oneonta Congregational Church. “Our focus will be on building relationships neighbor to neighbor, and taking a moment to pray together for our community.”
The breakfast is rotated around to community churches and this year the 7:00 a.m. event will be held at Holy Family Catholic Church. The event is funded entirely by private donations and ticket sales. The first annual breakfast in 2016 focused on disaster preparedness and raised more than $6,000 that was donated to three local programs that help community members in time of need.
Sponsors are being sought for the breakfast. Visit www.sopasprayerbreakfast.org to learn more about becoming a sponsor, and to purchase tickets which cost $25 each.
