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.
