April 4th marks 50 years since the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. The Stoughton Clergy Association is hosting a gathering and vigil on the green in Stoughton Center to remember his life and his ministry, and to speak out against gun violence.
The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis has invited congregations around the world to toll their bells 39 times to honor King’s age at his death and to pay homage to his work and his legacy.
Join us in front of First Parish (790 Washington Street, Stoughton) at 6:30 PM for a few words of reflection and prayer before we, along with First United Methodist, toll our bells at 7:05 PM, marking the time when the nation learned the news of his assassination.
Come together with your community to remember the prophetic vision of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and to remind us all that we will not Know Justice until we all Know Peace, and with No Justice, there is No Peace.
