Faith in Action Breakfast
We'd like to thank all those who attended our Faith in Action breakfast! We especially thank Kelley Coures and Mayor Winnecke!
A Tale of Two Cities — A Strategy for Reclaiming Our Neighborhoods
In his role as head of the Department of Metropolitan Development — where everything from the new downtown hotel and medical campus to helping the homeless to historic preservation is part of “what we do,” — Kelley Coures is widely regarded as a leader who can explain complicated issues in terms the public can understand.
He is disturbed by recent studies that indicate if the current trend of population loss within the city limits and subsequent lack of economic activity continues, in 2050 the population of Pigeon Township will be zero.
“Doing nothing is not an option,” says Kelley.
How to reverse decades of disinvestment in the center city — an issue experienced by 6 of 10 cities east of the Mississippi — will be the topic of this year’s Faith in Action Breakfast. Kelley will invite people of faith to join in resetting the city’s compass — moving in a positive direction that, over time, will create a city we can be proud of — and one that can offer opportunity for all its citizens.
Hosts — Rev. Jay Davidson and Parish Staff
This year’s breakfast will be held in St. Anthony’s Christian Family Life Building; use the Delaware Street entrance; parking available on-street or at Ziemer Funeral Home Central Chapel.
