First Parish of Watertown will host a vigil at the Suffolk County House of Corrections on Sunday, March 31, 2 – 3 pm. These monthly vigils provide an important opportunity to join with immigrants detained at the House of Corrections in an expression of immigrants’ rights. The vigils are conducted by faith communities under the auspices of the Massachusetts Community Action network (MCAN). The immigrants held at the house of Corrections are waiting for court dates related to immigration.
We will meet at 2:00 pm at the corner near 20 Bradston St. in Boston. There is street parking nearby, and parking is also available across from the Hampton Inn at 811 Mass. Ave. From there we will walk to an overpass where detainees can see us, and maybe even hear us. The vigil will include readings, songs and testimonies.
Please spread the word. For questions, contact Susan Kuder from First Parish of Watertown at firstname.lastname@example.org
