Online Interfaith 12/14 Memorial Gathering Planned
An interfaith gathering to commemorate the eighth anniversary of shootings at Sandy Hook School will be take place online this year.
Due to issues of health and safety during the current pandemic, Newtown Interfaith Council has chosen to host the annual gathering of remembrance through Facebook Live and YouTube. The gathering will air at 7 pm, Monday, December 14.
Those who wish to view the gathering can find it at the YouTube channel NCC-CT and on Facebook at Newtown Congregational Church.
Faith leaders from various Newtown religious communities will guide the community by reading from their sacred texts and offering prayers as well as allowing for times of individual reflection.
Newtown Interfaith Council members recognize that even while many people must remain physically apart, there is a great need for the community to find ways to remain spiritually and emotionally connected during this time of year. All are welcome.
