Mosaic South Pasadena hosted the eighth annual South Pasadena Prayer Breakfast on May 4 at the Rialto Theatre. Event chair Nancy Norris welcomed the community members in attendance, including representatives from 11 faith groups who offered prayers for the community at the breakfast and the 2023 grant recipients: the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena, Changing Tides, Door of Hope, Elizabeth House, Fire Family Foundation and MyKkids. The nonprofits received a $1,000 award. Keynote speaker Jessica ChenFeng gave a presentation titled “Help and Hope: Embracing Those Who Hold Us Up,” during which she encouraged guests to reflect on how they offer and receive care. Organizers also paid tribute to one of the South Pasadena Prayer Breakfast founding committee members, Frank Ponnet, who passed away July 7, 2021.
