A US Vatican cardinal will lead prayers for George Floyd in Rome Friday.

Cardinal Kevin Farrell will preside at a prayer service at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere June 5 at 7 p.m. local time. Farrell, the prefect of the Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, is the Vatican’s highest-ranking U.S. official.

The service is being organized by the Community of Sant’Egidio, a lay Catholic association founded in 1968 by Andrea Riccardi. In a June 4 press release, the community said participants would pray for “peaceful coexistence” in the U.S., which has been rocked by protests since Floyd was killed in police custody May 25.
