WASHINGTON – Thousands gathered to attend a “Let Us Worship” rally to protest coronavirus-related religious restrictions at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Sunday evening.

Attendees sang along to worship music and participated in group prayers at the event, which lasted from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The gathering was a protest against nationwide mandates to close indoor church services amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The event was hosted by evangelical activist Sean Feucht. Previous events in other cities included worship music, prayers, and mass baptisms, a local NBC affiliate reported on Friday.

Ron Rurik of Chicago, Illinois, blew into a shofar horn as performers on stage sang worship music. Rurik said that nothing happened in the Book of Revelations until the trumpet was blown, and compared the shofar to a “glory horn.”

He said he “prophesied” that President Donald Trump would win re-election, and that Vice President Mike Pence would go on to serve as president for two terms.

Around 15,000 people were expected to attend the event, NBC Washington reported. Health officials were concerned the event could increase the spread of the coronavirus.

Though D.C. requires masks to be worn at all times, attendees were not required to wear masks because the event took place on federal land.

“It’s concerning,” MedStar Washington Hospital Center Chief of Infectious Diseases Dr. Glenn Wortmann said, NBC Washington reported. “I mean, anytime there’s a group of a large number of people in one area, there is a potential for spread. The fact that the event is happening outside makes the risk lower.”
