The program will also include a history talk by Romy Saquing, musical prayers by Brian Tina and Melissa Isidro, and musical entertainment by Larry Dupio.

This event dates back to 1993, when then-Mayor Stephen Yamashiro and Rev. Richard Uejo worked with local religious leaders to organize an interfaith prayer breakfast for the community.
