Religious traditions represented will include Buddhism; Christianity; Hinduism; Judaism; Islam; Sikhism; and Unitarian Universalism. Mayor Tom Henry developed the program last year with assistance from Rev. Dr. Terry Anderson, executive director of Just Neighbors Interfaith Hospitality Network. the Mayor.

“We’re fortunate to live in a community that shares many different faiths that we can embrace and celebrate together,” Henry said in a statement. "(This) is a tremendous opportunity to show unity and appreciation for all residents.” Henry said the service is being repeated because of the "unbelievable" attendance of about 1,000 people at last year's event.
