Salvation Army Celebrates National Day of Prayer Thursday, May 3rd - Public Invited

Apr 27, 2001, 01:00 ET from The Salvation Army

    PITTSBURGH, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Once again, The Salvation Army will
 be taking its faith into the streets.  In celebration of the National Day of
 Prayer, the organization will hold an open community prayer service from
 11:30 a.m. until 12:00 noon just outside its downtown Pittsburgh facility on
 the corner of Grant Street and the Boulevard of the Allies.  Everyone is
 encouraged and invited to attend.
     Officially established in 1952 by President Truman, the National Day of
 Prayer has been regularly observed and celebrated by The Salvation Army.  Its
 main focus is to encourage the public to pray for our nation, its people and
 its leaders.
     Incepted in 1865 in London, England, The Salvation Army is a non-
 denominational Protestant church.  It is both a social service entity and a
 place of worship.  Salvation Army officers are ordained ministers and lead
 services at community-based Worship and Service Centers.  The Western
 Pennsylvania Division covers 28-counties, roughly half the state of
 Pennsylvania.  Administrative headquarters are located in the downtown
 Pittsburgh facility at 424 Third Avenue.
