Orlando United Day Vigil

You are invited to gather with St. John's UCC and our wider West Michigan community at the candlelight vigil on Monday, June 12, at 9pm. This event is located at 22 Sheldon Blvd., in the street adjacent Veterans Park in downtown Grand Rapids. June 12 is officially Orlando United Day, in remembrance of the 49 people who were murdered and dozen more injured as a result of the Pulse Massacre, the worst mass shooting in recent history. This event is hosted by the Apartment Lounge. 100% of the freewill donations collected when people receive their candle at the event will be donated to Equality Florida.
