PORTLAND, Maine — The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland said it supports the Day of Prayer and Fasting.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage has issued a proclamation recognizing Aug. 6 as a “Day of Prayer and Fasting for Our Nation.”

Texas Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has invited people from every state to come to his state for a giant prayer gathering. The Maine Legislative Prayer Caucus urged Mainers to participate in that event by gathering in communities, houses of worship and homes. They’ve also asked church leaders to help organize regional and local events throughout Maine.

Maine’s Catholic Bishop Joseph Malone is urging parishioners to participate in prayer and fasting on Aug. 6.
