The Bahá’í Community of Fort Wayne is delighted to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the formation of the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Fort Wayne this year.

On April 21, 1943, nine residents, the total number of adult Bahá’ís living in the city of Fort Wayne at that time, requested recognition by the National Spiritual Assembly to form a Local Spiritual Assembly (LSA). Mrs. Maye Worthington was immediately elected Secretary of that body.

Every year on April 21st, members of the Bahá’í community have elected another Local Spiritual Assembly. This year will mark the 75th anniversary of the original formation in 1943.

Bahá’u’lláh, the Prophet-Founder of the Bahá’í Faith declares the underlying and motivating principle of the faith is the unity of humankind.

“So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.”
