All Saints Church in Pasadena’s Civic Center suspended “business as usual” on Sunday to focus on violence that targets black people as church leaders, parishioners and members of the public joined a silent prayer march on downtown streets.

Church officials said  the march was “to focus on ending the culture of violence that disproportionately targets black lives in our nation and fuels the fires of anger and fear that claimed the lives of five police officers in Dallas.”

“We will claim the legacy of Rabbi Abraham Heschel who “prayed with his feet” when he marched in Selma just as we will march and pray in Pasadena on Sunday,” said the Reverend Zelda Kennedy. “And we will recommit ourselves to the work of listening, learning, hearing and believing that we can make a difference.”

Dozens of marchers followed young people carrying banners in the silent march.
