Archbishops Gomez, Chaput, to attend National Catholic Prayer Breakfast

.- Organizers recently announced that San Antonio’s Archbishop Jose Gomez and Denver’s Archbishop Charles Chaput will join Catholics from around the country in Washington D.C. for the 2nd annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast. The idea for the event was conceived in response to the call of the late Pope John Paul II for a "New Evangelization, new in ardor, methods and expression."

Last year, nearly 1,000 attended the breakfast and keynote address by Cardinal Avery Dulles, who spoke on the “perfect law of liberty.”

Other Catholic and civil leaders also attended, including Senator Rick Santorum who encouraged the faithful not to be afraid to live out their faiths in the public sphere.

The event’s organizers said that the annual gathering takes place “to thank Our Lord for his abundant blessings upon this Land.”

“We reaffirm our faith in Him and renew our dedication to this great Republic. We commit ourselves to providing for our brothers and sisters who are the most vulnerable in society, and we commit our country to the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary.”
