Tifton --Tifton religious leaders ask all residents to participate in a walk for peace, unity, and understanding.

Catholic priest Father Alfonso Gutierrez has organized a silent procession and funeral mass in honor of the six Mexican men slain last Friday, and Bobby Scott, who was gunned down by a Hispanic man just after midnight Thursday.

Gutierrez is trying to get involvement from several other churches in the area and hopes the event will draw people of all races. "We are looking for a really good understanding between all the communities. We are looking for peace. We are looking to forget these bad situations," says Gutierrez.

Participants are asked to wear white as a sign of peace and carry a candle. The procession will begin at City Hall in Tifton at 7PM Saturday, and will end at Our Divine Savior Catholic Church on Love Avenue.

A funeral mass for murder victims will be held at the church immediately after the procession.
