Trinity Buckingham sets gun violence awareness program, PeaceMeal

Posted

During the month of April, Trinity Buckingham Church is hosting “A Year of Faithful Witness,” a gun-violence awareness program sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania.

“We believe in a God of peace and healing who calls us to speak and act decisively against the tragedy of gun violence in our communities,” said the Rev. Dr. Nancy Burton Dilliplane, rector of Trinity Church. “Trinity Buckingham will be offering several events during the month of April to raise awareness about gun violence in our local region.”

The Installation of the Memorial to the Lost will be on view on the grounds of the Church at the intersection of routes 313 and 202. The Memorial to the Lost is a T-shirt memorial created by Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence, with shirts bearing the names of people killed by gun violence in Philadelphia.

Trinity will welcome Bryan Miller, executive director of Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence, for a listening conversation at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, March 31, in the church’s Faith Hall.

Episcopal Partnership in Community (EPIC) offers its monthly Community PeaceMeal to the local Bucks County community at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 7, in Trinity Buckingham’s Faith Hall.

This month’s Community PeaceMeal will include a presentation at 4:30 p.m. from Heeding God’s Call, focusing on how the people of this region might respond to gun violence in this area.

All are welcome to join in the free, hearty meal offered at Community PeaceMeal every month.

Trinity Buckingham Church is located at 2631 Durham Road in Buckingham.
