CANTON, Ohio (WJW) — The children and adults killed in the senseless, recent mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, Texas, were remembered during a Northeast Ohio prayer vigil Saturday afternoon.

The community was invited to gather on the front lawn of Congregational United Church of Christ in Canton (1530 Easton Street NE) at 4 p.m. to mourn the loss and rally for change.

“We will hold space for people to grieve, we’ll hold space for people to release anger that this has happened again and offer to stand in solidarity with the Uvalde and Buffalo communities,” the church said in a statement.
