The prayer service will honor the faith traditions of the Christian, Jewish and Islamic communities. Those present will offer prayer and thanksgiving for religious freedom, expressing gratitude for the right to practice and live their faith and contribute to the common good of society in accordance with that faith.

The Interreligious Prayer Service will include readings from the Koran, Torah and Bible. Religious leaders from many faith traditions will be present and all people of faith are welcome and encouraged to attend.
