WEST HAVEN, May 3, 2018 — Holding hands in prayer, from left, city administrative revenue collection clerk Victor M. Borras, Human Resources Commissioner Beth A. Sabo, Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and her executive assistant, Louis P. Esposito Jr., are led in a service by the Rev. Kathryn King, pastor of the First Congregational Church of West Haven, at the city’s celebration of National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 3, on the steps of City Hall.

The special day, which calls attention to the freedom of religious expression, was marked by Rossi reading a mayoral proclamation declaring National Day of Prayer in West Haven.

“Since the founding of the United States, public prayer has been a cornerstone of our rich heritage and values,” Rossi said. “The observance of National Day of Prayer is a powerful tool that unites citizens from diverse religious backgrounds in an effort to face life’s challenges with renewed hope and determination.”
