The Rev. Dr. Tony Larsen will lead a Racine Interfaith Coalition prayer vigil at 6 p.m. on Thursday on Monument Square in downtown Racine.

The vigil is being held to remember those who were killed and injured in the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida at the Pulse nightclub early Sunday morning, June 12. This attack took the lives of 49 people plus the shooter, and injured another 53, and is now considered the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Everyone is invited to attend and join in prayer and song for the victims and their families. Please share this information with others and try to attend, if possible.
