Wednesday 9th December
The word vigil comes from the Latin word for “awake,” and all its meanings include the idea of watchfulness. A vigil is recognisable as when people stay alert to guard something or people gather to observe time together in memory or honour of someone or some event.
Today between 10.00am and 2.00pm there is a vigil taken place in Huddersfield Parish Church. Under the auspices of the Mothers Union St. Peter’s host what has become an annual occasion somewhere in West Yorkshire.
Including a Eucharist at 12.35pm this vigil is part of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence.
Something to watch and pray for this Advent.
