Vigil Remembering Victims of Gun Violence

October 27, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Interfaith Worship Service

In troubling times, people of faith gather to pray in community. Members of the Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim and Baha’i faiths will remember the 777 people who died by gun violence in Georgia in 2020 as well as the 542 people, so far, in 2021. We will also remember the 11 people who died three years ago this October in the hate crime shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue.

Among those featured in this service of lament will be Calvin Griffin, bass with the Metropolitan Opera in New York City as well as members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The music and prayers of consolation, forgiveness, and peace will be followed by the tolling of bells.

Masks and vaccinations are required to attend in person.
This event will also be livestreamed here.
