“The last Saturday of each month, please join us on the rectory lawn from 6:30 to 7pm for our monthly Prayer Vigil to End Gun Violence. It is our way of standing against the culture of violence in our country. We also urge legislators to understand the urgency of this issue.”
“Join us every First Friday of the month for the Interfaith Prayer Vigil at Broadview (1930 Beach Street). We gather in solidarity with people who are detained or being deported.” (1 Block WEST of 25th Ave., 1-1/2 blocks SOUTH of I290, between Lexington and Harvard)
