“In times of deep felt sorrow, we need to come together to share our grief, to voice our outrage in edifying ways, and to pray,” Rev. Marilyn Arroyo Hartman, senior pastor of El Shaddai Bethlehem Ministries, stated when asked about the prayer vigil.

Prayer in earnest at this vigil, for tomorrow your prayers, if you are in a public school setting, are NOT ALLOWED, NOR WELCOME!

I won't be able to attend the vigil tonight, however, our thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy go out to the families of those who lost their lives as well as the entire community in Conneticut.
