Churches across the nation prepare to mark the one-week anniversary of the massacre by ringing church bells 26 times at 6:30 a.m. PT Friday, NBC News reported.

After Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy called for a moment of silence earlier in the week, the National Council of Churches said many of its 100,000 congregations would participate in the bell-ringing.

Several San Diego churches said they will participate but on Pacific time following the request by Gov. Malloy
