National Day of Prayer aims to bring SCV together.
On Thursday, May 3, 2007, the Santa Clarita Interfaith Council will sponsor a National Day of Prayer event at 12 noon in front of City Hall (23920 Valencia, Blvd., Valencia.)

“Santa Clarita is a city rich with religious diversity founded in our various faith traditions. Practicing religious tolerance individually and collectively will help ensure that all members of our community will be treated with dignity, respect and justice,” said, Pastor George McLeary, president of the Santa Clarita Valley Interfaith Council.
“Please join us as we unite in a spirit of friendship to pray for our local and national elected officials on the National Day of Prayer,” added McLeary.
