Event description

Description

The Mayor's Prayer Breakfast is an opportunity for the Christian community -- pastoral teams, ministry leaders, Christian business people -- to seek the well-being of the community and to pray for our leaders, as Scripture commends. It is an opportunity to build stronger bridges between City Hall and the faith community.


Our speaker this year is Milton Friesen, senior fellow at Cardus, and program director for Cardus' Social Cities program. Cardus is a Canadian think tank dedicated to research and education in support of flourishing communities, drawing on 2000 years of Christian social thought. The Social Cities program is committed to helping communities address social isolation through research into where community works well, where it fails and how it can be improved. He has served as a municipal councillor and is completing a Ph.D. at the University of Waterloo School of Planning, focused on new ways to measure the social fabric of neighbourhoods. Milton serves on the steering committee of the Thriving Cities Project at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture (University of Virginia). Milton is married to Michelle, has four children aged 15 to 24, and lives in East Hamilton.
