ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- A silent vigil was held outside of Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church on Wednesday night.
People representing about six different churches, mostly Catholics, walked in silence with signs.
The signs asked for voters to say yes to banning same-sex marriage in Minnesota.
Inside the church, the Diocese of Winona declared Wednesday a day of prayer for marriage.
In the church bulletin it read, "Please joins us in recognition of marriage between one man and one woman."
This prompted the walk outside.
"Since the Roman Catholic Church has voted 'no' to limit that freedom, we want to open a dialogue with them to see if we can come to some kind of common ground," said Gus Braga, of Holy Ground Church.
A statement on the Minnesota Catholic Conference website says they support the adoption, or a yes vote, of a state constitutional amendment preserving a current state law defining marriage as the union of one man and a woman.
