Candlelight Vigil Commemorates Sandy Hook

The Interfaith Clergy Association of Westport and Weston will commemorate the 1-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy with a candlelight vigil tomorrow evening (Saturday, December 14, 6 to 6:30 pm.).

Clergy of all faiths will gather on Veterans Green — opposite Town Hall — for a series of readings and prayers, to remember the lives that were lost.

Candlelight vigil“This is an opportunity for us to come together, one year later, in prayer, reflection, and hope,” says Rabbi Jeremy Wiederhorn of The Conservative Synagogue, and current president of the Interfaith Clergy Association.

Last year, the organization held a similar vigil following the tragedy, attended by several hundred people.

If it snows (as predicted), the vigil will take place on the steps of Town Hall.

  1. At Oyster Shell Park in Norwalk is a playground that was built to honor Allison Wyatt a victim of the senseless shooting. It was designed to show her personality and is part of The Sandy Ground Project:Where Angela Play. Some of her favorite things like Goldfish and the color red are represented throughout the site. If you get a chance, please stop by.

  2. Dan. That is wonderful. It all means a lot to the parents, of which one is a co worker, that these playgrounds are built. It will insure their memory lives on. Happy holiday to all.

    Fairfield’s Penfield also has Sandy Ground playground.

  4. I will be lighting a candle this evening in my window. Not sure if the weather will let me go downtown. When I think of the Interfaith Clergy Association I am reminded fondly of Dorothy Bryce.
