National Day of Prayer Boerne

Thursday, May 2

7:30am at the Kronkosky Center and 12:00pm at Main Plaza Gazebo


The National Day of Prayer is an annual event that enables us to recall and to teach the way in which our founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical decisions. On this day, we humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people. Plan now to join us – there is a morning gathering and afternoon gathering:


The Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast will be from 7:30 am to 8:30 am at The Center Kronkosky Place at 17 Old San Antonio Road, Boerne, TX 78006. Tickets can be purchased at St. John on April 14 for $10 (cash or check only) for breakfast catered by Bill Miller. Prayer will be offered and Bibles given out to distribute in 2024. See full agenda below.


Morning tickets for the breakfast can be purchased at St. John on April 14 for $10 (cash or checks only). The number of tickets is limited – only 15 left!  Stop by the table in the Gathering Place on Sunday to claim yours!


At noon on the Boerne Main Plaza at 100 N. Main Street, we will gather at the gazebo. Music will be presented by various children’s choirs, the national prayer will be recited together, and the Governor’s and Mayor’s Texas and Boerne proclamations will be read. Prayer will be offered for our community, state, and nation by citizens serving in Boerne. Bibles will be distributed for use in 2024. See full agenda below.
