(WIAT) — Cullman County School Superintendent Billy Coleman says the upcoming 3rd annual Prayer Caravan will go on as planned, regardless of a threat by one group saying it’s unconstitutional.

Coleman says the school district does not sponsor the event, but he did admit publicizing it on the schools website and Facebook page for a short period of time.

He says the Prayer Caravan is just a group of people who gather and go to each campus in the county to pray for about ten minutes the Saturday before teachers report to class.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation wants the event canceled and also accused the district of allowing the Lord’s Prayer to be led in school.

Coleman denies that has ever happened.

The event is scheduled for August 10th 8am-5pm.

Starting at Garden City, then to Hanceville, Welti, Holly Pond, Parkside, Fairview, Career Center, Vinemont, West Point, Harmony and CARE, Good Hope, and Cold Springs.
