Logos Academy has scheduled a prayer vigil to bring together community members with the hope for a state budget resolution.

The vigil will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 14 at the school, 250 West King St.

"The budget impasse has forced many schools and organizations to extend their already significant lines of credit to keep doors open, providing education and services to Pennsylvanians," the press release said. "Some have had to delay services or cut back on expenses and are in jeopardy of a complete shutdown. The vigil will focus on community, support and prayer for our political leaders as they work together to develop and pass a budget for the people of Pennsylvania."

Logos Academy like other schools and non-profits, relies on the Educational Income and Opportunity Scholarship tax credit programs which have been jeopardized by the impasse, now in its fifth month. The budget impasse has delayed the state's release of approvals for businesses to make donations, which in this case go toward providing scholarships to students in need, in exchange for tax credits.

Those with questions can call Logos at 848-9835. The vigil does not require an RSVP.
