Interfaith Vigil for Victims of Gun Violence on the 5th Anniversary of Newtown

Saturday, December 9, 4-5 PM  Skyline Church, 12540 Skyline Blvd, Oakland CA

Skyline will host an Interfaith Vigil  in remembrance of all those killed and injured in all of the mass shootings in this country on the 5th anniversary since the Newtown,  Connecticut shootings.  It is on Saturday, Dec 9th at 4 pm. This is a service of candlelight, labyrinth walking, music, prayers, community, sharing and healing with love.

Our interfaith vigil is aligned with UCC’s national vigil and with Newtown Foundation’s 5th Annual National Vigil since the Newtown shootings. It is also an official ICAC (Interfaith Council of Alameda County) event. 

When gun violence and hate crimes destroy innocent lives, when homophobia, racism, and islamophobia plague our world, we are reminded to come together, to grieve, and to re-dedicate ourselves to love, inclusivity, non-violence and peace.

Skyline Community Church invites you to gather in a vigil to end gun violence and to honor the lives that have been sacrificed, to mourn and share our grief, and to stand together in solace, solidarity, and strength.
