Care 2 News about this tragedy:
According to the comment left by Amy McCreath on the linked news report,
a vigil will be held for the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School
tragedy. Here is a copy of that comment:
"How hard it is to hear this news. Even harder to hold it and respond to it alone. Tomorrow morning (Saturday, Dec. 15) at 10 am, there will be a gathering at Church of the Good Shepherd to lament, to find solace in scripture and God's promises, and to share prayers for individual and communal healing. Please share this invitation with others who might want to join us. (The heating system at the church is under repair, so wear a warm sweater.)
Saturday, Dec. 15th, 10 am.
Church of the Good Shepherd (Episcopal)
9 Russell Ave., Watertown"
