Trinity Church demonstrates support for refugees and Muslims in response to Trump’s executive order

Friday, Feb. 3 at 12 p.m.—RUTLAND—On Friday, Feb. 3 at noon, communities all around the country will be holding services of unity and solidarity for all refugees, Muslims and all those in our country who feel unwelcome by the current political climate. Both the Muslim and the Christian traditions hold midday as a sacred time for prayer, and therefore is a point of connection and solidarity. Trinity Episcopal Church in Rutland will be participating in this nationwide call to action and will hold a service of unity and solidarity at noon on Friday, Feb. 3. All are invited and encouraged to join in expressing welcome to the stranger and hope for unity and peace.
Trinity Church’s service of unity and solidarity follows an earlier expression of the Episcopal Church in Vermont as standing in solidarity with Muslim and refugee communities. The Episcopal Church in Vermont will hold a solidarity vigil on the Statehouse lawn in Montpelier at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Trinity Church is located at 85 West Street, Rutland.
