March for Our Lives Prayer Vigil

Friday, March 23, 2018 | 7:00pm

On Saturday, March 24, the students and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools.

On Friday, March 23, Washington National Cathedral will host an interfaith prayer vigil for activists, students and pilgrims.

  • Tickets and registrations will not be required for entry, however, registration is requested to help the Cathedral prepare to welcome everyone
  • Bus groups seeking on-site parking MUST request via the registration form 
  • Doors open at 6:15 pm
  • All will be welcome; seating is first come, first served

Students and leaders from many faith traditions will lead this prayer service recognizing the breadth of trauma caused by gun violence, including community shootings, school massacres, suicide, and related traumas. In prayer and song, this gathering will honor those we have lost, acknowledge the pain we carry, and lift up the need for healing for ourselves and our country.  Together, we will call on the spirit of hope and love to carry us forward.
