Shed a Light on the Need to End Gun Violence at the Annual CFCU Candle Light Vigil

Wednesday, December 12, 2018 • 4 Tevet 5779

4:00 PM - 5:30 PMFirst Plymouth Congregational Church, 3501 S. Colorado Blvd., Denver, (SW and NE Corners of S. Colorado and E. Hampden Ave.)

Please join Havurah B’kavod Jose Diaz and thousands around the nation as we honor all victims of gun violence and mark the sixth anniversary of the Newtown massacre at our annual Candlelight Vigil.

We’ll begin at 4:15 pm with brief remarks by clergy from Temple Sinai, First Plymouth and Calvary Baptist outside First Plymouth  (3501 S Colorado Blvd.), before heading to the intersection at  Hampden and South Colorado Boulevard.  Bring your light source and signs.
 
This event is sponsored by Colorado Faith Communities United to End Gun Violence (CFCU) to which B’nai Havurah belongs and hosted by First Plymouth and First Universalist.  CFCU stands in solidarity with ALL who have been impacted by improper use of firearms — be it the hateful mass shootings at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA; Borderline Bar in Thousand Oaks, CA; the hate killing of two African Americans at a Kroger store in KY; victims of domestic violence, general homicides, gang and urban violence, and the tragic three quarters of gun deaths that are death by suicide.  Every life is sacred, and more than 38,000 are taken each year by bullets.  

Schedule for the Vigil:
Arrive by 4:00 pm
Invocation at 4:15 pm
Gather from 4:30 - 5:30 pm

Bring light sources for you and your companions.
 
Please RSVP to Pat Madsen at  patsact@hotmail.com if you plan to attend.
