You are Invited to Join in the Warm Glow of a New Year’s Day Community Gathering

Join us at  Montebello Park in St. Catharines/Niagara this January 1st at 6 p.m. for a ‘Shine Your Light’ gathering of our Niagara community

An Invite from Karen Orlandi, Student/Outreach, c/o Bethel United Church, Cooks Mills United Church and Silver Spire United Church

Posted December 31st. 2018 on Niagara At Large

Our solution to the incredible sense of loss we have experienced as a Region, is to re-connect our community.

We need each other and we believe the answer is in community.

We will gather January 1st at 6:00 p.m. in Montebello Park to turn on the light we each have brought at 6:15pm. Bring your phone, a flashlight, a candle, lantern, etc.

Please come out and join your neighbours to meet, have conversation and stand in light together and be a community safety net.

Please invite your friends, colleagues, organizations, congregations and neighbours to Shine the Light in Niagara!

Together our hope is to spark a change for the New Year.

Please understand that this is not a rally, a vigil or a protest. Our hope is for our community to come together and be together.

If you are a member of an identifiable faith tradition, community group or emergency services of any type, we invite you to wear your uniform or any identifiable insignia.
