Faithful gather at Haiti service

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An interfaith prayer service drew more
than 100 people to pray for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
The service at the St. Martin de Porres Parish included members
from the Baptist Haitian Tabernacle and the Haitian Seventh Day
Adventist Church of Kentucky.
Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz said during the Saturday
service that people of all faiths should "come together to weep,
to have our eyes opened and to stand in solidarity."
Haitian-born Seya Cesar is a member at St. Martin. She says she
has two relatives who are missing in Haiti. She learned through
Facebook that the rest of her family had survived.
A visitor, John Turner, says the service left him and his wife
with a sense of unity.
