State Rep. Deborah “Deb” Conroy (D-46, Elmhurst) is inviting local religious leaders to visit Springfield in the months to come.
“I encourage all local religious leaders interested in offering the invocation at the House of Representatives to contact my office,” she said in a prepared statement dated Jan. 16. “Delivering the morning prayer is a unique opportunity for clergy from communities across the 46th District.”
Each day the House of Representatives is in session, a religious leader offers a short invocation to bless the Legislature as it attends to the people’s work. Conroy will send out letters early next week to clergy members in her district, offering them the opportunity to lead an invocation. Over the next few months, clergy members from across Illinois will visit the Capitol to help begin the day’s work.
“This time-honored tradition has brought countless words of hope and inspiration to our ongoing pursuit of improving the lives of Illinois residents,” Conroy said. “As the challenges we face in state government are immense, we will need a strong commitment to faith, family and community to overcome them.”
The 46th District, located entirely within DuPage County, includes all of Glendale Heights and Villa Park and smaller portions of Elmhurst, Bloomingdale, Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn, Addison, Lombard and Oakbrook Terrace.
For more information or to schedule an invocation, contact Conroy’s constituent service office at (630) 415-3520 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
