Readings, song, as well as a reciting of all the victim’s names are included in this ceremony. Clergy will be available for one-on-one healing prayer, laying on hands, and words of comfort after the service.

It is our intention to bring together the diversity of the people that make up Clarksville, TN.

We will mourn and celebrate the lives lost in Orlando, FL. As people of faith, we face the suffering caused by gun violence, believing that healing is possible.

“At this point in our communal lives, we have watched – too many times – people, our fellow humans, our fellow Americans, become victims of gun violence. We have watched – too many times – as our peers, friends, and loved ones have fallen victim to marginalization, hate, and violence,” said the Rev. Meghan Holland, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church.

“This prayer vigil is an opportunity for those in Clarksville, regardless of faith, to remember and mourn the loss of life we experienced in Orlando. It is also an opportunity for our prayers to urge us into action,” stated Holland.

“My hope is that people come away with a sense of divine healing, reminded that we are called to love each other without exception and respect the dignity of every human being,” Holland said.
