VIGILS FOR HEALING
The vigils are public interfaith spiritual observances held year round at or near the murder site.
We tap into the diverse spiritual life of our community to promote peace and encourage the process of healing.
Vigils last about 30 minutes and can include prayer, candle lighting, ringing of a bell to remember past murder victims, presentation of a prayer shawl, music and light refreshments
Anyone who wishes to speak during a vigil may do so.
To receive email invitations to upcoming Vigils for Healing, Contact Us.
We are open to all, and we welcome your suggestions and involvement.
