Sandy Hook Bell Vigil
Submitted By Toni Shellen
As we solemnly remember the one-year anniversary of the tragedy at Sandy Hook School, honor all victims lost to gun violence and strengthen our collective recommitment to prevent gun violence. The Tri-City Alameda County Chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has planned an Interfaith Vigil for that day.
The Tri-City Alameda County Chapter invites Tri-City churches and other organizations to toll their bells on December 14. A service will follow.
Sponsors for the event include: Tri-City Alameda County Chapter Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, The Tri-City Interfaith Council, Pax Christi Fremont, Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose, Sisters of the Holy Family, and Interfaith Women of Peace.
Please not that this is a solemn non-political interfaith vigil. No signs, please.
