The annual patriotic event celebrates the diversity of all faiths and works to build understanding and unity.

"The Maine National Guard Prayer Breakfast was instituted nearly three decades ago in order to celebrate this day, in the spirit that was intended: to encourage prayer, build understanding among faiths, and to acknowledge God's role in our respective and collective lives," said Col. Andrew Gibson, the Maine Army National Guard Chaplain. "The Prayer Breakfast is not a religious service, it is a spiritually based patriotic ceremony welcoming of all faiths and promoting our mutual respect for each other and our thankfulness for God's presence in our lives."

The cost of the breakfast for those who choose to eat is $10 per person. The event is free to attend.

Interviews with Maine Army National Guard Chaplain, Col. Andrew Gibson, and other attendees are available following the ceremony.
