Labyrinth Vigils: Quiet Witness for Justice and Peace

Labyrinth Vigils: Quiet Witness for Justice and Peace

The term vigil denotes a period of wakefulness.

This fall, on the third Monday of each month, August–November, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Scarritt Bennett Center is offering an opportunity to come together in wakefulness to all that is going on around us as we approach this coming election. Standing together in solidarity we can bear witness to those things which need changing.

We invite you to stand with us in vigil of quiet witness for justice and peace on the outdoor labyrinth of the Scarritt Bennett Center.
