Interfaith Prayer Vigil as Key Court Decisions Approach

Supreme Court decisions on Prop 8 and DOMA loom

Unless an exception is made, the Supreme Court of the United States will release its decisions on California’s Prop 8 and the federal DOMA law by Monday, June 24. In April, during Holy Week, concerned citizens surrounded the SCOTUS public hearings on the freedom to marry with prayer.

Many LGBTQ and allied faithful have been praying for the deliberations of the court since then. Let’s complete this season or continue our prayers on Wednesday June 26 at 7 p.m. at the Sixth Presbyterian Church, at the corner of Forbes and Murray in Squirrel Hill (parking on the street or under the Carnegie Library).

We will pray with our bodies, minds and spirits in light of the Supreme Court action that will impact us all by affirming that civil marriage is a civil right. Let us join in prayer together! All are welcome!
