Prayer vigil for nation set for Jan. 19

Jan 11, 2021

Belfast — The First Church in Belfast, UCC, will hold a prayer vigil for the nation the evening before the inauguration of our new president and vice president, Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris.

The vigil will take place in front of the church, 107 Church St., and will begin as the church clock strikes five on Tuesday, Jan. 19. All are invited to come and add their voices, a prayer, poem, or reading, for the health and healing of the United States of America and a blessing for our future.

If weather permits, participants will gather around a fire pit and may bring candles to light a flame for peace, hope and unity in the coming four years. Masks and social distancing will be required.

The First Church in Belfast is an open and affirming congregation.
