Monday: Reston Church Prayer Vigil for Charleston Victims

United Christian Parich/Courtesy UCPUnited Christian Parish will hold a prayer vigil Monday at 6:30 p.m. to honor the victims in last week’s shooting at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.

Nine people were killed at Emmanuel when a white gunman began firing at a Wednesday night bible study at the historically black church. The gunman, Dylann Roof, 21, is in custody.

Sunday services were held yesterday at Emmanuel. Rev. Norvel Goff Sr., a presiding elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, said moving forward “sends a message to every demon in hell and on earth.”

UCP will hold a vigil every night through Saturday to honor the Charleston victims.
