Louisville church holds prayer service to remember victims of violence

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- While Louisville's murder rate has leveled off somewhat, faith leaders gathered Wednesday night to pray for the victims of violence.

Region One Churches of the Archdiocese of Louisville held a prayer service at Good Shepherd Catholic Parish. Members said the annual remembrance is important to provide hope to victims' loved ones and comfort. 

"To let those victims know that even though it might have happened a year ago or eight months ago or six months ago or just a couple of weeks ago, that their loved one's life is important to us, and we lift them up to God," said Fr. Chuck Walker, Pastor at Good Shepherd Catholic Parish.

This is the third year the church has held the service.
