ST. GEORGE — The faith community will join together on New Year’s Day for the 10th annual “Prayer Over the City” at the historic St. George Tabernacle.

Civic and faith leaders will deliver brief thoughts or prayers on a variety of subjects and music will be provided by an interfaith choir. No one religion is endorsed above another, so all can come together to feel unified and uplifted.

Past “Prayer Over the City” events have included not only members of various Christian denominations, but also representatives of the Jewish and Buddhist faiths.

Last year we had 18 local faith groups represented and about 250 people came out to join with us in a unique event that truly shows the unity that makes our community special,” said Jimi Kestin, senior pastor at Solomon’s Porch Foursquare Fellowship and president of St. George Interfaith Council.

Admission is free and open to all. The event is expected to last until 1 p.m.
