This Sunday, a small museum situated on Auburn Avenue will be the gathering spot for a group of people who’ll pray for U.S. Rep. John Lewis.

The vigil was planned after Lewis confirmed he has pancreatic cancer. He said at the time he will continue to serve the people in Washington, D.C., while he begins his treatment plan there.

His friend Dan Moore Sr., founder and curator of the Apex Museum where the vigil will be held, spoke with “Morning Edition” host Lisa Rayam about the vigil and his gallery that’s dear to the Civil Rights icon.

The prayer vigil takes place at 2 p.m. Sunday, and it’s open to the public.

Update: The date of this event was changed by the organizers.
