Keeping watch: a vigil for Ramiro and Bri-anne

June 26 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pm

Free

On June 26 a prisoner in Texas will be executed for crimes he committed twenty years ago. Rev. Bri-anne Swan of East End United first made contact with Ramiro Gonzales ten years ago as prisoner pen pal. (See Broadview article here) Now that all appeals have been exhausted, she will be with him all day on June 26 as his spiritual advisor. Everyone is invited to pray and keep watch throughout the day for Ramiro, Rev. Bri-anne, others facing the death penalty, those charged with performing the execution, their families and all others involved in capital punishment.

Sign up at robinwardlaw@eastendunited.ca for a half hour of keeping watch at home between 9 a.m. and 4 that day, or if you live nearby, join with others in person at the Eastminster Campus, 310 Danforth Ave. for an hour or two between 4 and 9 p.m. (The execution is scheduled for 7 p.m. Eastern Time.) Light nourishment provided around 6.
