Vigil at the Boston ICE Detention Center

Sunday, December 23, 3pm, Meet at 20 Bradston St, Boston

Please join us to remember, to see, to love those who are forgotten. As we enter the Christmas season, our American deportation nation continues to keep our immigrant neighbors away from their families. Join us for an interfaith vigil at the South Bay Detention Center, co-sponsored by Congregation Beth Elohim in Acton and South Acton Congregational Church. We will sing Christmas songs and pray the traditional Jewish afternoon prayer (“mincha”). People of all religions (and no religion) invited! We will also be delivering Holiday Cards for the Detainees so bring one if you can! Also, as we walk together to the overpass where we will show our support for those in detention, we will walk past a group of individuals suffering in active addiction. If you feel so called, please bring a few care packages to hand out on the way to support our brothers and sisters. Parking is available across from the entrance to the Hampton Inn at 811 Mass Ave.
