INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett spent part of his Sunday at the Sikh Satsang of Indianapolis.

The Mayor’s Office says Hogsett was invited to attend a service. He tweeted that it was a morning of fellowship, conversation and worship.

The mayor also joined Muslim Alliance Indiana last Wednesday as they celebrated Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

“Between Ramadan and the Iftar dinner, the JCC ceremony and this — it’s been an exciting week celebrating the diversity of faiths in Indianapolis,” said the mayor’s office.

In contrast, the Trump White House did not host an iftar dinner to commemorate Ramadan, breaking a nearly two decade tradition.

Hogsett said Indy’s diversity of viewpoints and backgrounds contributes to the richness and vibrancy of the city’s culture.
