Gov. Mary Fallin announced that a memorial and prayer service will be held this Sunday, May 26, at the First Baptist Church in Moore.

The service will honor and remember the victims of the May 20 tornado that killed 24 people in Moore and the May 19 tornado that killed two in Shawnee. It is open to the public.

"The people of Oklahoma are resilient," said Governor Fallin. "The grief we are experiencing right now is indescribable. But we have seen tragedy before, and we have recovered and emerged as stronger people and a stronger state. "

"This Sunday, I invite the families of those affected by these terrible tragedies, the people of Moore and Shawnee, the state of Oklahoma and all of those who have sent us their thoughts and prayers to attend this memorial service. Together, we can honor those we have lost, pray for those they left behind, and begin to heal together."

First Baptist Church is located on 301 NE 27th St in Moore, Oklahoma. Details of the memorial and prayer service are pending.
