An interfaith vigil was held Thursday night at Van Cortlandt Park to bring the community together during a difficult time. 
The crowd formed a large circle with people going in and out saying prayers, poems, singing songs and burning sage. 
The crowd also echoed each person in unison. 
The community gathered together and said they felt an overwhelming sense of love. 
"We wanted space to pray for those who are victims of white supremacist’s violence and so we want to do that in a peaceful way,” said Pastor Tabatha Holley. 
The group also handed out PPE at the vigil to those in need and to people who planned to go out and protest.
