A message from Mayor Glen Hartwig - Wednesday, 6th April 2022

Over the last couple of months you have been through a lot. Two flooding events, the continued impact of COVID-19, the rising cost of living and a host of other challenges. 
 
While it is impossible to rectify any of these overarching issues, what we can do is provide a space where you, and the wider community as a whole, can come together to celebrate faith, fellowship and community spirit. 
 
It has been two years since the last Mayoral Prayer Breakfast. 
 
It’s my pleasure to announce that this event is back on and will be held on Friday 22 April 2022 at Memorial Park, Gympie. 
 
Memorial Park is obviously a change of location to Mayoral Prayer Breakfast’s past. 
 
The reason we chose this location is because we did not want to exclude anyone in our community from attending. 
 
As it happens, the state government will be lifting previously mandated restrictions around certain venues but we felt it important to keep Memorial Park as the site of this year’s event. 
 
Memorial Park is significant because not only is it steeped in local history, it is a spiritual place where every year we honour men and women who have served our nation during the darkest of times. 
 
It’s also a public space which was severely impacted by the floods. It’s important we activate Memorial Park in a way which is befitting its history. 
 
We will bring you more information about this event in the coming days and weeks; so stay tuned. 
 
I want to take this opportunity to thank members of our faith-based community for their work to date. Our chaplains, ministers, priests, preachers and congregations around the region provide a safe space and a crucial service for those in need and for those who are seeking a relationship with God. 
 
Thank you again and see you all on the 22nd.
