JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As the worldwide debate over response to Syria's alleged use of chemical weapons continues, a Jacksonville congregation will come together this weekend to pray for the situation.

Our Lady of Peace Syriac Catholic Church will hold a special mass on Sunday afternoon. It begins at 1 p.m. at the church on Terry Road. The mass will be in Syrian.

On Saturday, there is a "No War with Syria" rally at Memorial Park in Riverside.

The protest will begin at 1pm tomorrow and protestors will march to Congressman Ander Crenshaw's office.

All are welcome at the rally and there will be Syrian-Americans on hand to talk about their personal connections to the country and why they hope the U.S. does not strike.
