Silent Vigil and Witness in Response to Racism
On Sunday, June 7, from 1-1:30pm faith communities around the state will hold interfaith, silent prayer vigils and witness in response to the racism and divisiveness evidenced in our nation and our community, culminating in the murder/lynching of George Floyd in Minneapolis last week. Locally, St Michael’s Episcopal Church will provide space, outside, along the lawn of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, 16 Bradley Avenue, Corner of Putney Road and Bradley Avenue. This one and others will all begin at 1pm for a half hour prayerful silent vigil.· For safety, attendees will be spaced 10 feet apart (family groups may stand together). Designated Guides will meet you and direct you to a place to stand for the vigil. Also for safety during the pandemic, there will be no group gathering for prayers, speeches, or other reasons and it is asked that you. Bring everything you will need: signs, water, etc. There will be no bathrooms available for the same reason. If you do not feel safe being out in the community or have risk factors for the virus, please feel free to stay home and offer a prayer during this time.
