Prayer Vigil for Victims of Orlando Shooting

On Saturday, June 18th at 8:00 pm, the Boston Temple Seventh-day Adventist Church will be holding a prayer vigil in solidarity with those affected by the Orlando shooting.

The vigil is scheduled to last about an hour and will include songs, prayer, a speaking out moment if people need a space to share their fears, concerns and thoughts. We hope this vigil will be an opportunity to support each other as we process this tragic event. 

Donations received will be given to the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida, which is helping the shooting victim’s families in Orlando. All welcomed and invited. Light refreshments will be served.
