Good Friday Prayer Walk

April 10, 2009 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Join PSR and over 18 Berkeley congregations in a prayer vigil walk to call for an end to violence within our community. The procession will begin at Lutheran Church on the Cross (1744 University Avenue) at 12 pm and end at First Congregational Church of Berkeley (2345 Channing Way) at 1 pm.

The procession will be stopping at several sites where violence against youth and homeless people has occurred, to honor the victims and to urge area governments to make greater efforts to keep our cities safe and ensure that treatment of the most vulnerable among us is just.

The walk has been organized by the Pacific School of Religion and BOCA (Berkeley Organizing Congregations for Action), a non-profit, multi-ethnic, cross-cultural, inter-religious, and interracial coalition of congregations representing over 10,000 Berkeley families committed to putting faith into action (see www.berkeleyboca.org).
