Packers & Prayers

No, this is not a reference to our usual seasonal prayers for a successful draft, or season, or SuperBowl win, or that Favre doesn't get hurt and/or retire...rather, since we are in the midst of Easter and Passover seasons (while not meaning to exclude those of another or no particular religious affiliation), thought I'd pass along some info from a friend in Green Bay who keeps an eye on these types of things. As he said, "I thought that you might find it interesting how involved the Packer organization is in the wider prayer movement in greater Green Bay! See below:

National Day of Prayer- Thurs. May 3rd; 7 a.m to 8:40 a.m.
Prayer Breakfast- Riverside Ballroom, 1560 Main St.
Hosted by Mayor Jim Schmitt
Keynote Speaker: Packers defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila

National Day of Prayer Ladies Lunch- Thurs. May 3rd 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.
KI Convention Center, 333 Main St.
Hosted by Dona Schmitt
Keynote Speaker: Deanna Favre, wife of Packer QB Brett Favre"

So, if you are in or near GB, or would be interested in participating in either of these events...there ya go.
