Area congregations to host vigil for Jewish shootings

April 18, 2014


In the wake of last week's fatal shootings at an Overland Park Jewish community center and retirement community, several Lawrence congregations will gather at 7 p.m. Monday for an "Interfaith Vigil For Community, Solidarity and Hope."

The event will be held at the Lawrence Jewish Community Center, 917 Highland Drive, and will feature prayers, songs, silence and poetry with the goal of promoting tolerance and diversity.

The list of participating clergy includes Pastor Sherry Warren of Plymouth Congregational Church, Rev. Jill Jarvis of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Rev. Dwight Welch of Ecumenical Campus Ministries, Pastor Joanna Harader of Peace Mennonite Church, and Rabbi Moti Rieber of the LJCC.

The service is free and open to all. For more information, call ECM at 843-4933.
