Bishops United Against Gun Violence is a group of more than 60 Episcopal bishops, including our own Bishop Thomas Ely, working to curtail the epidemic of gun violence in the United States. In partnership with The Concert Across America to End Gun Violence, member bishops are asking congregations to remember all victims and perpetrators of gun violence in liturgy and song on Sunday, September 25, 2016.
Liturgical resources are available on the Bishops United Against Gun Violence website. Clergy who will be hosting special services or adding remembrance to their liturgy on that day are asked to contact mharris@dioceseofvermont for inclusion in upcoming announcements.
September 25, which is National Gun Violence Awareness Day, will culminate with a series of concerts to be held at select location across the United States coordinated by The Concert Across America to End Gun Violence. Click here to locate a concert near you.
