PHILADELPHIA, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On behalf of the Philadelphia host committee, we hope you've enjoyed your time in our city. We've enjoyed having you as our guests. Philadelphia is a city rich with American history, but it is also a place rooted in deep faith. As we close out the final hours of this great convention, I am reminded of the first American saint, Philadelphia's own Katherine Drexel, who believed that joy derives from serving and loving our neighbors.
As a man proud of my Catholic faith and a proud resident of Philadelphia, I am honored to introduce our next speakers.
They are leaders in the faith community who share these values and work to serve their communities. Through their faith, they bring hope and joy to others.
It is with deep respect that I now welcome Archbishop Demetrios, Rev. Bernice King, and Gov. Eddie Torres to each lead us in an invocation.
