In Harrisburg, Mayor Eric Papenfuse's Interfaith Advisory Council held a prayer and remembrance service for the victims of last week's deadly shooting rampage in South Carolina.

Last Wednesday night, a bible study was being held inside Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, when a gunman walked inside and opened fire, killing nine people.

On Sunday, the message in Harrisburg was that in order to obtain peace in the world, we must all work together as one.

"You would see members in parts of our community black and white and other shades different face, and I think we're all united we all have one father, we all have one core mission and we can only achieve peace if we all work together," said Rabbi Ron Muroff of the Chisuk Emuna Congregation.

Sunday's prayer service was part of a larger Father's Day celebration.
