Rev. Kevin Kenney came up with the idea to have the service next to church in a garden dedicated to Saint Francis by saying the Peace Prayer.

"We all have different opinions and ideas but we all want peace," Kenny said. "We all want to work together. We all want to be united, not divided, and that’s what’s going make our city great again, if we can unite."

Kenney said he hopes to keep the church open during the trial, but they do have an evacuation plan if needed.
