For many Philadelphians, these past several days and weeks have been disorienting. We are adjusting to different routines and the loss of physical connection and even financial stability.

We are juggling many needs and priorities that seem to conflict. We are tending to our own health and the health of those around us. We are journeying on an uncertain road.

For those who find grounding and hope in faith and spirituality, this unprecedented moment is an invitation to be encouraged through prayer and meditation.

Join us on Facebook Live each week on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 3 p.m. for Prayer Pauses for Philadelphia. Like the Mayor’s Office of Public Engagement on Facebook to receive a notification about the live stream. A leader from one of our many faith communities will join me and guide us through a short prayer for health, peace, and wisdom during this destabilizing season.

If you have any questions or concerns, please connect with Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart, director of faith-based and interfaith affairs in the Mayor’s Office of Public Engagement for support by emailing: [email protected].
