Minnesota churches in support of the same–sex marriage amendment held a vigil to celebrate what they feel was a long awaited success.

Pilgrim Congregational in Duluth hosted the event that featured music, prayer and opportunities for community members to share their thoughts.

Members say this week's historic passage of the bill shows how far Minnesota has come in acceptance of the gay community.

"It's just a wonderful day and we have to thank everybody that worked tirelessly. A lot of people worked harder than I did and for that I am greatful," says Pilgrim Congregation member Carri Hoagland.

Pilgrim Congregational is open and affirming, which means the church is open to all gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender.
