Pax Christi Elmira is requesting area faith communities to take part in a vigil, “Dusk to Dawn,” scheduled on the third anniversary of the United States’ invasion of Iraq, March 19-20. This invitation seeks to unite people in prayer for an end to the war.
“Our hope is that every house of prayer in the greater Elmira area will open its doors on that night,” according to an e-mail from Patricia and Peter Ladley, organizers.
The Ladleys noted that the vigil should begin at 6 p.m. on March 19 and end at 6 a.m. on March 20.
Each faith community is invited to plan its own vigil. Contact the Ladleys at email@example.com for further information and/or assistance.
