Local churches come together to protest a recently-passed ban on worship services in public schools.

Photo by Rickey Kraemer. This shot was taken Friday evening. According to Kraemer:

Trinity Grace Church and a dozen other New York City churches gathered for an event called Citywide Worship, where the central focuses were worship, prayer and unity of the Church in New York. In this photo, hundreds of Christians are joining hands in prayer in response to a recently-passed law that will ban worship services from taking place in public schools. Dozens of churches in the city are affected.
