Charlotte’s Interfaith Virtual Vigil
to Lament and Mourn 100K+ Lives Lost to COVID-19
Monday, June 1 at 12pm
Forty Five Charlotte houses of worship and organizations are joining together tomorrow at noon for a virtual vigil to lament and mourn the 100,000+ lives that have been lost to COVID-19. Our own congregation is included. 100,000 lives, 100,000 families torn apart, 100,000 families in grief. Our country is in grief. The protests and the pain we are witnessing across our country in response to the murder of George Floyd are not unrelated. Join us at noon to lament, mourn, begin the process of healing, offer hope, and commit to acting together to bring about essential change.
