The National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance held on the first Thursday of May, designated by the United States Congress, when people are asked "to turn to God in prayer and meditation". Each year since its inception, the president has signed a proclamation, encouraging all Americans to pray on this day. The modern law formalizing its annual observance was enacted in 1952; however, days of prayer have been called for since 1775, when the Continental Congress designated a time for prayer in forming a new nation.

The National Day of Prayer is celebrated by Americans of many religions, including Christians of many denominations, including Protestants and Catholics, as well as Sikhs, Muslims, Hindus, and Jews, reflecting the demographics of the United States. On the National Day of Prayer, many Americans assemble in prayer in front of courthouses, as well as in houses of worship, such as churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples. Luncheons, picnics, and music performances revolving around praying for the nation are also popular observances. Traditionally, the President of the United States issues an official National Day of Prayer proclamation each year as well.

2014 Eastern CT Walk Against Hunger is coming up!

Thursday - April 24, 2014

Please join us in historic Chelsea Parade (the NFA Green) in Norwich as we gather to raise funds to provide groceries, fresh produce, and hot meals to hungry children, families, individuals, and seniors.

Your support enables us to provide food to people who are served by Connecticut Food Bank's partner distribution organization, the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center in New London, as well as food-assistance programs located in Windham County.

Every step and every dollar raised makes a difference! A $7.00 contribution will provide someone in need with one week of meals and give hope for a better tomorrow.

Last year, hundreds of walkers helped us raise enough funds to distribute $1.2 million worth of food at wholesale value.
