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.
