UPDATE: This event has been moved to the Davis & Elkins College Chapel.

There will be a public candlelight vigil in Elkins on Thursday to honor the memory of the victims of Sunday’s shooting in Orlando. We will gather to remember the 49 who lost their lives that night and pray for the 53 who were injured.

  • WHEN: Thursday, June 16, 8:00 pm
  • WHERE: Elkins Town Square (Rain location: Robbins Chapel at Davis & Elkins College)
  • Before the candlelight vigil, there will be a community discussion and meditation at Jivaka Wellness Center (map), starting at 7:00 pm.

From the event coordinator, Katy Ross of Elkins:

There will be local ministers guiding our prayers and good thoughts, musicians leading us in song, and an open mic for anyone who wishes to share their thoughts on the tragedy. We will have candles available, but feel free to bring your own.

This will be an apolitical event at which no sort of hate or prejudice will be tolerated. All are welcome, and we want all to feel safe.
