Community to gather Sunday in New Haven for day of prayer

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) - A day of prayer will be held this Sunday on the New Haven Green.

People of all faiths are invited to gather for prayer and singing. The goal of the event is to encourage wisdom direction courage and strength for everyone.

Plans were in the works before a shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
"The timing for a large scale demonstration of introspection seems right", said New Haven Mayor Toni Harp. "Our community stands to benefit from a chance to reflect quietly, assess, and express itself" 

The day of prayer is from 3:00-5:00pm this Sunday on the New Haven Green.

It will be moved to the center church on the Green if there's bad weather.
