Diocese of Rochester to Join "City Sing" on Dec. 20
ROCHESTER - A regional coalition of churches, temples, mosques and non-profit organizations will soon gather to sing for peace and stand against the violence that plagued Rochester and the world this year. On Sunday, December 20, Rochester-area residents of many faiths and backgrounds will unite for "City Sing: For Peace and Unity" at the Public Market, 280 N. Union Street, 14609 at 4:00 p.m. and walk in groups through the Marketview Heights neighborhood (weather permitting), singing songs of peace.
The organizers will provide songbooks and ask us to keep things simple: to dress warmly and to bring our voices and a candle, taper or flashlight. The goal of the event is an expression of peace and unity, so we will not be gathering in protest or to carry political banners. Rather, the fellowship of Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and other faiths will be our statement against the violence and fear we have seen in our city, our country and our world.
The event is free and the public is welcome.
