St. Gregory’s Invites Community to Candlelight Prayer ServiceBoca Raton prayer service will honor victims of Orlando shooting

St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church invites all members of the South Florida community to a candlelight prayer service on Wednesday, June 15 at 6 p.m. to honor the victims of the Orlando massacre.

The service will be held in the main sanctuary in downtown Boca Raton at 100 NE Mizner Boulevard, Boca Raton, FL 33432. Angela Cortiñas, Assistant Rector for Youth and Families, will lead the service. While this service will incorporate Christian prayer, people of all backgrounds are welcome.

“The St. Gregory’s congregation grieves for those who lost their lives and the family and friends left behind,” Cortiñas said. “We hope this prayer service will help our local community begin the healing process and inspire people to go forth in love and end the cycle of hate, bigotry and violence.”

St. Gregory’s is an inclusive, dynamic, and loving Episcopal congregation that welcomes all people to worship, including those in the LGBT community. The church recently launched an Integrity Chapter, an Episcopal ministry that reaches out to the LGBT community. The mission of St. Gregory’s is to make known to all people the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, including ALL, excluding none.
