NAPLES — A local religious group has canceled a planned worship service planned for March 26.

Voice of the Faithful of Southwest Florida, a lay organization of Catholics, will no longer hold a prayer service Thursday at Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church in North Naples, local Voice of the Faithful President Peg Clark said in an e-mail release.

"Please take this hour that you may have reserved to spend in church with the (Voice of the Faithful of Southwest Florida) and use it in prayer for the intention for which the Mass/Liturgy was to have been offered," Clark said in the release.

Clark gave no reason for the cancellation.

The group had planned to hold a worship service at the Presbyterian church after its request to hold a Mass at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in North Naples was denied by the church's pastor, the Rev. John Ludden.

Voice of the Faithful held annual Masses to pray for victims of sexual abuse the previous six years.
