Prayers event for city to be Sept. 14

The second annual Prayers for the City is approaching.

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

The event, which Henry developed last year along with senior adviser Terry Anderson, is planned for 4 p.m. Sept. 14 at the USF Robert Goldstine Performing Arts Center, 431 W. Berry St.
