Vigil for Sri Lanka

April 26, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Interfaith Prayer Vigil for Sri Lanka. In Niagara Square.
Organized by the WNY Peace Center, with the Interfaith Peace Network, Tasneem Hamead, and the Muslim Women’s Council of UB. Cosponsors also include the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Buffalo Chapter, Lincoln United Methodist Church, Muslim Public Affairs Council, Pax Christi of WNY, PeaceJam Buffalo, Riverside Salem UCC/DC Environmental Cottage, Ss Columba-Brigid Parish, and St. Joseph’s University Parish Social Justice Committee.

It will be focused on prayer and solemn intention for condolences,
comfort, healing, safety, relief, and blessing of the people of Sri Lanka.

As we are not going for a permit (no need nor time), we will not have a
PA system, and most likely not a bullhorn either. There may be some
music; and possibly communal prayer out loud with a people’s mike
(people repeating short phrases said by the speaker/prayer).

It is fully legal, though we could conceivably be required to keep
moving. Prayerful signs and any prayer or worship items are welcome.

If you would like to cosponsor, please contact [email protected] And we appreciate
your publicizing it whether you cosponsor or not.
