Group hopes to bring back prayer to the Dubuque council meetings

Posted:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A group of religious leaders are hoping to bring prayer back to the Dubuque City Council meetings.

Until last month, city council members started each meeting off with a prayer. But members say it was difficult to find a religious leader to conduct the prayer instead they voted for a moment of silence.

Now, a group of religious leaders made up of all faiths, Dubuque Area Congregations United, are lining up people to conduct the prayer before each meeting.
