National Day of Mourning and Lament

with 2 Comments

Monday, June 1. Special service of Evening Prayer: 6:30 p.m., via Zoom

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has joined with over one hundred other faith leaders—from Christian, Jewish and Muslim traditions representing major denominations, national faith-based organizations, local congregations, and millions of people of faith across the country—in calling for a National Day of Mourning and Lament to grieve and honor the over 100,000 people in the U.S. who have now died from COVID-19. This call is being supported by the U.S. Conference of Mayors who represent over 1,400 mayors across the country. Please view the video below to learn more about this event.

On Monday, June 1, at 6:30 p.m., Saint Mark’s service of Daily Evening Prayer online will be focused on this special observance. Dean Thomason will lead the prayers. All are welcome.

Contact Sacristan Michael Seewer, mseewer@saintmarks.org, if you do not already have the Evening Prayer Zoom link.

    I am glad that we will do this mourning.
    When will we have a time of mourning and contrition for the unlawful deaths of people who are not white?
