Candlelight Vigil for America

Event Dates and Times

12/31/2017 - Starts: 9:00 PM - Ends: 11:55 PM
1/1/2018 - Starts: 12:00 AM - Ends: 12:30 AM
Marquette Unitarian Universalist Meeting House, 1510 M-28 East, Marquette, MI 49855
The Marquette Unitarian Universalist Church at 1510 M-28 Marquette, Michigan will open their doors to the public from 9:00 pm to 12:30 am on New Year’s Eve, for a drop-in silent candlelight vigil of prayer, meditation and/or focused positive attention for healing of America, its people and its government.

In this trying period of uncertainty, political distrust and fracturing of the American polity, citizens are troubled and confused at what they see happening in America since the 2017 election. Citizens on every side have expressed a desire to heal splits, come together again as a country and find a way back to honorable, trustworthy, and thoughtful governance that fully represents the interest of all citizens.

Many have expressed a desire to do something to make this happen but want a safe environment without controversy in which to express themselves. They realize how important democracy is to American life, but the hustle and churn prevents them from giving it full intention.

Therefore, the Marquette Unitarian Universalists would like to open their doors on New Year’s Eve to all members of the public for a silent healing vigil. People wishing to attend can drop in at any time from 9:00 pm until just after midnight to turn inward and silently focus their hopes, prayers and resolutions for America and American government in coming year of 2018 as they light a candle symbolizing those fervent wishes.
