“Footprints” is the theme of the 2018 Westmoreland County Prayer Breakfast, set for 7 a.m. Jan. 26 at the Ramada Greensburg Hotel and Conference Center in Hempfield.

Jim Bendel, director of planned giving at Saint Vincent College and master of ceremonies at the annual breakfast for more than a decade, will provide this year's keynote address.

The event will focus on not-for-profit organizations and the “footprints” they make across the region.

For more than 40 years, the breakfast has provided a forum meant to encourage local leaders to build upon common strengths that unite area elected officials, educators, employers, workers and residents.

Students from all school districts in the county also are invited, to highlight the importance of unity to tomorrow's leaders.

The cost to attend is $20 per adult, $15 per student. To register, visit westmorelandchamber.com/events and select “Chamber Calendar.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
