Join Bishop Alan M. Gates and the B-PEACE for Jorge Campaign again this year in making a public witness against gun violence by walking together in the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace on Sunday, May 13.
This annual pledge walk is sponsored by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and is a fundraiser for the institute's work in support of families and its efforts to create more peaceful communities.
The Diocese of Massachusetts and its B-PEACE campaign have had a strong team at the walk since 2013, and organizers hope many will join the walk to make 2018 another year when Episcopalians are witnessing together for peace, building relationships and celebrating mothers and families.
Walkers joining B-PEACE can start off together at 8 a.m. from Town Field Park (1520 Dorchester Avenue) in Dorchester, or join the walk at the second entry point at 9:45 a.m. at Madison Park High School (75 Malcolm X Boulevard, Roxbury Crossing). The walk will conclude with a peace rally at Boston City Hall Plaza at 11 a.m.
Walkers can get ready by signing up, seeking pledges and spreading the word. A bulletin insert is available here.
