State lawmakers, city officials, parents and pastors gathered in Bakersfield, California on Sunday to participate in a “School Prayer Day” event.

About one hundred people took park in the event at the Bakersfield Liberty Bell, according to 23ABC News.

Bakersfield vice mayor Ken Weir also attended the event.

“A lot of forces are trying to separate God from our school, but I think it’s time we realize you can’t take God out of education, ” Weir said.

The event, which was announced by California Assemblywoman Shannon Grove (R), featured four local pastors along with California state Sen. Jean Fuller (R).
