A local church in Steubenville is holding a prayer vigil in response to recent violence in the city.
The vigil is being held at St. Peter Catholic Church in response to the event in Charlottesville, and the shooting of Judge Bruzzese, who continues to recover in a Pittsburgh hospital.
Today’s vigil is called Uniting Our Community. Officials say it’s an effort to bring people together in love and prayer instead of hate.— Brooke Chaplain (@BrookeChaplain) August 25, 2017
Officials say recent events locally, nationally, and globally have been disturbing, so this is a grassroots effort to bring peace and unity to our communities.
All are welcome.
