CAIRO, IL (KFVS) -

The rain did not stop some from observing Good Friday outside.

Church leaders in Cairo hosted a prayer march.

They carried a life-sized cross and led members down Washington Street.

About 10 area churches took part in walk.

Organizers say the march brought the community together.

"We have seen so many negativity coming from outside but we want to tell the people this is a nice place to live and it is a good place for anybody to come and make it his home,” said Rev. James Muriuki, with Church of the Redeemer.

About 20 people participated.

The march concluded with a mass at Church of the Redeemer.
