Hundreds prayed in unison as they walked the streets of Stamford Sunday afternoon. St. Mary’s Church held its first Walk for Peace and Unity, where residents were joined by the mayor and city officials on a walk from Elm Street to Cove Island Park.

“The idea is first pray together, second pray for peace and unity, and third to create community,” says Reverend Rolando Torres, associate vicar at St. Mary’s and St. Benedict’s Church.

“There’s so much turmoil and agitation in the world that we’re here just to pray,” says Alda Braccia, who helped organize the walk.  “Pray for our own community, pray for the peace that we don’t have any fighting in the streets, and pray for the world.”

Organizers say they hope to make the walk a yearly event.
