The combined houses of worship in Peekskill will begin a week of prayer Sunday with a “unified day of prayer.” Members of dozens of communities are expected to take part in a kick-off prayer service at 3 p.m. at Peekskill Plaza, 4 Nelson Ave. (the corner of Main Street and Nelson).
The Peekskill Area Pastoral Association, known as PAPA, is asking individual congregations to hold prayer services for the community through the week.
Presiding over Sunday’s service will be the Rev. Adolphus Lacey, PAPA’s new president, who is pastor of the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church.
