  • 07:00 PM
  • Romemu - West End Presbyterian Church, 165 West 105th Street NYC

150619073926-charleston-sc-vigil-new-york-large-169Please join us for a musical multi-faith vigil marking a week since the Charleston attack. We will honor the nine innocent lives who had gathered to study sacred scriptures by coming together, reciting, singing and illuminating nine verses from the Bible, as we pray as one for healing, justice and peace. We will be joined by Muslim faith leaders and will end this ritual by inviting them to break the Ramadan fast with us at a symbolic Iftar.
