United 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.
