Vigil For School Safety and End to Gun Violence

The Vigil for School Safety and an End To Gun Violence sponsored by the Episcopal Churches of Stamford, was an inspirational event this past Sunday in Latham Park.  Many speakers from our interfaith community, including our own Fr. Sandy, Fr. Wilfredo, and Fr Mark Lingle gave important voice to the emotions we have all felt in the recent aftermath of violence in our country.  Senator Blumenthal, our Mayor, and other officials attended and spoke.  About 250 people from the community came out to hear words of comfort, inspiration and motivation. Among others, Moms Demand Action and CT Against Gun Violence supported and participated in this event. Thank you to all St John’s parishioners who supported this event, and the successful school supply collection for Domus.
