Prayer Vigil Friday For Conn. Shooting Victims At Courthouse

The Greeneville-Greene County Ministerial Association will host a Community Prayer Vigil on Friday morning to honor the memory of the 26 people who were killed last week in the Newtown, Conn., school shootings.

The vigil will take place in front of the Greene County Courthouse, beginning at 9:15 on Friday morning and ending at 9:30, with the tolling of the Greeneville Cumberland Presbyterian Church bell 26 times to honor the victims of the tragedy promptly at 9:30.

Meanwhile, the State of Connecticut is commemorating the one-week anniversary of the shooting at 9:30 a.m. Friday also, with a moment of silence at that time.

So the local ministerial association "felt this time would coincide with that time," according to the Rev. Martha Moore Beamer, association president.

She added, "We are inviting Greene County and Greeneville city mayors and directors of Greene County and Greeneville schools to attend.

" We urge our community to show Greene County support to the families, the Newtown community, and any who have been affected by this dark incident."
