This Thursday, May 2 New Cumberland is participating in National Day of Prayer.

Residents, business owners, non profits and local officials will join together to form a human prayer chain from Borough Park up to 16th Street, all along Bridge St.

All are welcome to be a part of the celebration! We’ll begin to gather at 6:30 p.m. and the National Anthem will be sung at 7 p.m.

This year’s theme is Love One Another and this is a great opportunity to come together and show our neighbors that we love and support one another and want happiness and hope for a better future.

This year marks the 31st celebration of National Day of Prayer.
