Superdome Site for New Year's Day Interfaith Celebration
Lt Governor Landrieu to host Louisiana Rebirth: Interfaith Celebration
WHAT: Louisiana Rebirth: An Interfaith Celebration will be held in the shadows of the Louisiana Superdome where thousands in the eye of the storm sought shelter, representing a pilgrimage of rebirth for New Orleans and Louisiana.
The Superdome, emblematic of Louisiana's spirit of hospitality, has hosted some of America's most memorable sports, entertainment, cultural and tourism events.
The four months preceding New Year's Day 2006 have defied human dignity, the spirit of a community and the will of a nation. This special service, inspired by faith, celebrates the enduring strength of those dedicated to the rebirth of Louisiana.
Religious leaders from throughout Louisiana will lead an hour-long service that will feature the voices of evacuees, first responders, musicians, artists and children whose lives were interrupted by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
WHEN: Sunday, January 1, 2006
WHERE: Louisiana Superdome/New Orleans Center Plaza
