TUCSON - The community came together with prayer, reflection, and music Sunday. The theme, "We Remember, We Celebrate, We Believe."
The Interfaith Service was packed with people who came to remember those who died in the January 8th shooting, those who survived, and those who helped.
There was music, there was dance, and even Christina Taylor Green's children's choir from St. Odilia's preformed.
There was the sounding of the Shofar and a Native American flute meditation.
The names of the people who died a year ago were read, a rose was placed at the altar in their memory including John Roll, Gabe Zimmerman, Dorothy Jean "Dot" Morris, Phyllis Schneck, Dorwan "Dory" Stoddard and Christina-Taylor Green.
A light was shining brightly over the people attending the services including Ron Barber who survived the mass shooting. He also helped organize the event. He says this weekend has been filled with mixed emotions for him and for Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. "We're sad certainly to think about those we lost we're lifted up by the community and she is too and she loves Tucson as you know and can't wait to be back here full time."
Governor Jan Brewer also attended the services and was moved by the unity of all the faiths . "That we as a people can join together and be blessed by that God that we believe in." Her message to the victims, and their families, "I would say peace be with you and may God bless you."
