GREAT FALLS -

Members and allies from the LGBTQIA community ended the weekend of Big Sky Pride with an Interfaith Gathering Service in Great Falls on Sunday morning.

The service brought individuals from all walks of life together regardless of religious beliefs or sexual orientation. 

Around 30 individuals attended the event, which focused on group discussions of creating a community of unity in Montana.

"The idea that we can come as community and as we disperse through the state of Montana, we build connections with other people and support systems and have an ability to continue to change laws and injustices that happen in little towns that happen all over Montana," said service coordinator Micah Hartung. 

People shared personal stories and symbolic items as part of the Interfaith Gathering. 

Hartung says the service held a moment of silence for the 49 shooting victims in Orlando; Hartung says the gathering provided a way for individuals to grieve together.  

"To stand strong, to love those that are hard to love and continue to march, whatever mountain may seem (to be) in front of us, and take the pace that we need to take," said Hartung.
