Government-led prayers at Wilkes-Barre City Council July meeting

Government-led prayers continue at Wilkes-Barre City Council meetings.

July 16’s ‘combined session’ included three prayers — during the special meeting, the work session, and the regular meeting — in one evening. As usual, Councilwoman Maureen Lavelle led the following prayer: “Almighty and everlasting God who presides over all things in Heaven, come and preside over these deliberations so that those who make the decisions may be guided by your wisdom.”
