Ann Dut­ton, pres­i­dent of the Char­lot­te­town Area Chris­tian Coun­cil (CACC), along with mem­bers of the CACC and Is­lan­ders from across the prov­ince will gather in fel­low­ship to ex­pe­ri­ence and dis­cover the amaz­ing power of pray­ing to­gether. Tra­di­tion­ally, peo­ple from all walks of life and all parts of P.E.I. come to­gether to en­joy two hours of food and en­ter­tain­ment com­plete with a pow­er­ful spir­i­tual mes­sage from a com­mu­nity spir­i­tual leader.

“Pray­ing to­gether keeps us in har­mony with peo­ple around the world all striv­ing for peace, “says a re­lease. “A hearty break­fast com­bined with re­flec­tion, prayer and en­ter­tain­ment will warm your hearts.”

The guest speaker, Rev. Wayne Short from the Angli­can Christ Church in Cherry Val­ley, P.E.I., will speak to the theme: 1Peter 2:9 “Called to pro­claim the mighty acts of God.”

Mu­si­cal ren­di­tions will be of­fered by Erin Evans of Com­mu­nity Bap­tist Church in Char­lot­te­town. Lt.-Gov. Frank Lewis will of­fer words of wel­come to all in at­ten­dance and rec­og­nize other dig­ni­taries in at­ten­dance.

J.W. (Bill) Camp­bell will be the mas­ter of cer­e­monies.

Tick­ets are avail­able through most Char­lot­te­town churches for $15, which in­cludes taxes and gra­tu­ities.

The break­fast pro­motes unity among peo­ple of faith and en­cour­ages the world to rec­og­nize the Christ in each other giv­ing cre­dence to the fact that all are chil­dren of God.
