Prayer Vigil held for Newtown, Conn.

December 18, 2012
Patty Weinberg of Marshalltown is shown lighting a candle for the people of Newtown at Trinity Lutheran Church’s Prayer Vigil and Memorial Eucharist in the church sanctuary Monday evening. The Marshalltown church sponsored the vigil in response to the Dec. 14 massacre of 26 children and adults at Newtown’s Sandy Hook Elementary school. The Rev. Gregg Davison, and Jolene Jebsen, assisting minister, conducted the service. Prayers were offered up to the victims and 26 candles were lit in memorial. Additional prayers were offered up to the victim’s families, school staff, Newtown’s community counselors, law enforcement, medical staff and clergy. Trinity has previously sponsored vigils — open to those of all faiths — after tragedies such as 9/11 and Newtown.
