    Vigil for Racial Justice

    Tuesday, September 22

    12 noon - 1:00 pm

    262 State St, Albany

    Westminster is initiating a public Vigil for Racial Justice to be held Tuesdays, 12 noon – 1:00 pm on State Street in front of the church. We will meet initially on  4 Tuesdays: September 22 and 29; October 6 and 13.

     

    You are invited to join us and pray; hold signs; and witness the need for racial justice in our city, our country, and our world.

     

    A large sign will read VIGIL FOR RACIAL JUSTICE. A leader will start each vigil with prayer. The remainder of the time, participants will stand with signs to pray for justice. Bring a sign along with wording of your choice if you are able. Basically a silent vigil, each person is asked to think carefully about “Why am I doing this,” so if asked by a passerby they can answer.  

     

    If you are able to join us (1 hour or 1/2 hour shift), please click here to respond or email the church office at: office@wpcalbany.org  Leave your name, date(s) you will attend, return phone number and email address.
