225 Strong Against Gun Violence

Sunday was B-PEACE's seventh year of walking to support survivors and calling for an end to gun violence. We are grateful for the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute for all the work they do all year to support those who have lost a loved one to guns and to prevent future incidents of violence. 

Despite rain and chilly conditions, B-PEACE and Episcopalians from DioMass had over 225 leaders walk this year! Some of the Episcopal congregations who were represented include:

Cathedral Church of St. Paul's, Boston

Christ Church/Old North, Boston

Emmanuel Church, Boston

St. Mary's, Dorchester

St. Stephen's, Boston

Trinity Church, Boston (100 people strong!)

St. Paul's, Brookline

St. John the Evangelist, Hingham

Christ Church, Quincy

Parish of the Epiphany, Winchester

St. Elizabeth, Sudbury

St. Peter’s, Beverly

Big shout out to Congregation Dorshei Tzedek, an extremely active Jewish community that is a big supporter of B-PEACE, too! They had over 70 people doing the walk as well! 

To paraphrase Abraham Joshua Heschel, let's keep praying for peace with our legs.
