Episcopalians invited to make anti-gun violence witness at Mother's Day Walk for Peace

B-PEACE at Mother's Day Walk

Massachusetts Episcopalians are invited to join Bishop Alan M. Gates and the B-PEACE for Jorge Campaign again this year in making a public witness against gun violence by participating in the Mother's Day Walk for Peace on Sunday, May 12.

The Diocese of Massachusetts and B-PEACE have participated in the walk every year since 2013.

This annual pledge walk is sponsored by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and is a fundraiser for the institute's support of families affected by homicide and its efforts to create a more peaceful society.

Walkers will gather at Town Field Park (1520 Dorchester Avenue) in Dorchester, where the event starts with on-site registration beginning at 6 a.m., program at 8 a.m. and step-off at 8:30 a.m.  Walkers can also join at a second entry point at 9:45 a.m. at Madison Park High School (75 Malcolm X Boulevard, Roxbury Crossing).  The walk concludes with a ceremony at Boston City Hall at 11 a.m.

Register with and/or pledge in support of the B-PEACE for Jorge team here, and find more information about the walk at www.mothersdaywalk4peace.org.  Questions may be directed by e-mail to bpeace@ssypboston.org.
