To pray or not to pray

Here is a discussion:

There is this little private one day party/festival in a little district in a little town. About 60 people gather for lunch, some dancing and few games.
Before lunch there also is a catholic religious service.

Arguing with religious freedoms it is lately become something difficult. Many people does not care and do not want to be involved in the argument. However, I believe that everything has to be questionable because passivity is also an action.

Is it justifiable to vote the continuity of the religious service if the organizers want? Or just plain take it off the calendar? Or it shouldn't be touched?

The service proponents claim that elders attend the service and they really want to have it. They are elders so are we going to take that off from them?

On the other hand, what does a religious service contribute to the festival? We can argue that the lunch, the  music, dancing and games,
contribute directly to the means of the party/festival which is to enjoy and eat. But does the service add up to this?
