National Day of Prayer gathering in Green Bay

GREEN BAY – People gathered in Green Bay Thursday for the annual National Day of Prayer.

Ceremonies are designed to celebrate the freedom of religion provided in the Constitution.

Among the events locally was a luncheon at the Riverside Ballroom.

Since 1952, federal law has required the president to proclaim the first Thursday in May to be a National Day of Prayer to acknowledge prayer in all faiths.
