Third Annual National Day of Prayer

On Thursday, May 4, 2023, District Attorney Pamela Price and Chief Assistant District Attorney Otis Bruce, Jr. join Supervisor David Haubert and many community and religious leaders and families at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds to honor the Third Annual Alameda County National Day of Prayer!

“The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1755 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer, and in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.”
