Jim Thorpe candlelight vigil for peace

candle-in-the-darkJim Thorpe will join the world in prayers for peace during a candlelight vigil Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. in the Josiah White Park.

Jim Thorpe author and spiritual activist Michelle Gallagher organized the bring-your-own-candle event after witnessing social media reaction to terrorist attacks and the Syrian refugee crisis.

“Let’s create peace in the world by starting right where we are – on and offline. This is for our children,” Gallagher said.

The bells of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church will ring to open the ceremony which will include poetry, music and the ringing of Tibetan bells to raise and carry the vibration of peace around the world.

Those unable to attend the actual event are encouraged, wherever they may be, to light a candle and offer their own thoughts and prayers for peace.

For more information or to participate in this event please contact Michelle Gallagher at 570-954-4520 or email at Michgall@gmail.com
