Victims of violence Vigil

Sheriff David Doughty, of the Northampton Sheriff’s Department in collaboration with several local pastors and ministers will sponsor a Victims of Violence Vigil, on July 16, 2022, from Noon to 2:00 p.m., at the Cape Charles Town Park.

The focus of the Vigil is to commemorate and honor those who lost their lives resulting from wanton violence. Further, the detrimental effects of violence in our communities, the detrimental effects on families victimized by the loss of loved ones related to violence and the effect violence has on clergy will be highlighted.

The Vigil will commence with a gathering of the attendees in a silent march around the park. Orange ribbons will be attached to poles to commemorate the lives that have been lost to violence. Speakers at the Vigil will include family members that have lost a loved one through violence.

Prayer, poems, and songs will be offered by local pastors and choirs, and the names of individuals who lost their lives to violence will be read aloud, followed by a bell peal. All attendees will be asked to submit the names of loved ones lost to violence as they enter the Park.

All are welcomed to come out, bring a chair and umbrella, to support loved ones, friends and colleagues affected by violence. Refreshments and care packages will be provided for all attendees.
