A cross-section of the Orangeburg faith community invites the community to gather at 5 p.m. Sunday at Bruin Stadium to join us in prayer for the Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School family.
This Community Prayer Vigil is designed to offer a pastoral response for healing and reconciliation just hours before students, educators and staff return to school Monday morning.
As people of faith, we long to reclaim the site as a place of hope, transformation and learning. We want to reclaim the space as a safe harbor where minds are shaped and character is formed.
Local churches also are encouraged to take a moment during their services Sunday morning to pray for the shooting victims and their families, all of those who might be dealing with the emotional fallout from witnessing the incident, as well as the teen suspect and his family.
Everyone is invited to join us, rain or shine. For the health and safety of all, please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
If you have any questions, please send an email to email@example.com.
