Join us at Union Congregational United Church of Christ to mourn and unite through a peaceful, candlelight vigil. United we make America whole.
You can join this vigil onsite at the House of Worship or online. Following the vigil, join other members of your community in small, hosted online discussions.
Mourning Into Unity brings Americans together to grieve the deaths of the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic and all our collective losses: unemployment, unsafe schools, unsafe workplaces, unsafe tomorrow. By peacefully gathering together, we defuse the rising tide of violence threatening our country. In the spaces of our mourning as a nation lies the nexus of our wholeness, oneness and health. It'll do you--and our country-- a world of good because healing our nation begins with mourning--and unity follows.
In addition to this vigil, we also invite you to join the Washington, DC vigil online on October 19 at 6pm ET. Following the vigil, the Washington, DC host community, the Church of the Epiphany, will process from BLM Plaza to the White House with a length of purple fabric representing the total number of US COVID deaths as of mid-October. Join us for this vigil by registering on the Church of the Epiphany event page.
