HOMEWOOD, Pa. - A Good Friday rally brought dozens of people to Homewood on Friday -- marking the day with a message of peace and unity.

Many of the participants at the fifth annual Prayer 4 Peace March have been touched by violence. They talked Friday about how they’re using faith to make the community safer.

The message of the several dozen participants could be heard for several blocks as they marched and carried signs through Hermitage Street on their way to Frankstown Avenue.

“We need peace in our streets,” said Connie Moore, who lost her son to violence.

Moore’s son, Hosea Davis, was fatally shot in January. Police are still searching for his killer.

“That’s all I really want is justice. I don’t want revenge. I just want justice for my son and my family,” Moore said.

For some of the families involved, the Prayer 4 Peace March is just the beginning. Many of them have other vigils and events planned for their loved ones.
