The timing could not be better.  Aside from what's dominating the news today and over the weekend regarding the Mass Shootings in Dayton and El Paso, Buffalo has its own challenges when it comes to gun violence and related homicides.

Crisis Services, UNYTS and ECMC are sponsoring this event.

WGRZ reported that Sahlen Field will host a Prayer Sevice this week.  Here are some of the comments from Local Pastors:

"Our children, elderly and middle aged are dying. It is from preventable things, from things we can educate and help them on," Apostle Garney Davis Jr. of Impacting Love Global Ministries said.

Added Pastor Latricia Davis: "We expect this region to be transformed by this unified message."

Spiritual leaders from as far away as Kansas City and the Carolinas will participate in the free day-long event on Saturday.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. You do not have to stay all day.

Many organizations will also be on hand to provide services including Crisis Services, UNYTS and ECMC.
