A national event aimed to bring communities across the country together will be celebrated locally this week.
The National Day of Prayer ceremony is scheduled to be held at noon Thursday at Heritage Park in Wapakoneta.
The Rev. Mark Bauer, pastor of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, said this event is important because it brings the communities together.
“This event brings people together to share in prayer,” Bauer said.
