The nineteenth annual Redland City Mayoral Prayer Breakfast was held on Friday 27 August 2021 at the Alexandra Hills Hotel and Conference Centre. The event was attended by 175 people including invaluable sponsors, school principals, students and chaplains, church leaders, state and local government representatives, business people and community members.
More than $27,500 was raised for state school chaplaincy programs across Redlands Coast at the 19th annual Redland City Mayoral Prayer Breakfast. All the money we raise through these breakfasts helps fund the wonderful chaplains, who now work in 83 per cent of state schools across Redlands Coast. This brings the total amount raised since 2015 to nearly $150,000.
The Redland City Mayoral Prayer Breakfast breakfast is a special annual event that brings together the community to raise vital funds for chaplaincy programs for Redlands Coast’s state schools which benefit more than 14,500 local students each year.
Chaplaincy programs provide important social, emotional and spiritual support for Redlands Coast students, staff and families through mentoring, role modelling and pastoral care that enhance wellbeing and educational outcomes.
