FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry held the 2nd annual 'Prayers For The City' event Sunday afternoon at the USF Robert Goldstine Performing Arts Center.

The event featured praying, singing, dancing, and readings from various religious traditions. This year, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Skihism, and Unitarian Universalism were represented at the proceedings.

Working with Rev. Dr. Terry Anderson, Executive Director of Just Neighbors Interfaith Hospitality Network, Mayor Henry developed the event to celebrate the many faiths in Fort Wayne.

“We’re fortunate to live in a community that shares many different faiths that we can embrace and celebrate together,” said Mayor Henry.

“We’re experiencing unprecedented momentum in the City of Fort Wayne by working together and understanding the importance of diversity and acceptance. Prayers for the City is a tremendous opportunity to show unity and appreciation for all residents.”
