The annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast saw about 75 people worship and reflect on community leadership.
The event on Saturday (May 5) involved music, prayer, and an address by Dr. Julien Hammond, Ecumenical Officer for the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton.
Dr. Hammond spoke on the integration of faith into public spaces, leadership and faith, and leading a Christian life in the community.
"The mayor's prayer breakfast provides an opportunity each year for community churches to come together and have a city-sponsored event where they pray for leadership," said Jonathan Milke, administrative assistant to mayor Gale Katchur.
The breakfast is held in partnership with the Fort Saskatchewan Ministerial Association, by whom the speakers for each event are chosen.
"The Mayor's Prayer Breakfast is something that I think is very important for the community. Proof of that is in the fact that you can find it in different communities - Edmonton, Strathcona County, and Sturgeon County all host their own," said Milke.
"It's one of the few opportunities for the church and the state to meet," he added.
The event was held at the Dow Centennial Centre.
