Vigil for April 16 in Camden

Last night at our community house we prayed in honor of the victims of April 16, victims of local violence, and for the death of JJ Stinson, an Oblate Associate and Virginia Tech student and a big part of the Newman Community at Tech. In attendance were the DSW community, Jesuit Volunteers, the Cashios, Father Mike, Kevin Moran, and a friend of mine from Newman, Krista. We sang songs from Voices of Hope, the album recorded by Tech’s Newman choir for the 1 year anniversary of the shooting. We read the names of the victims and a little about their life. We lit candles of those we cared about that have passed, and shared about their life instead of focusing on their death.
