BREAKING THE SILENCE: A WALK FOR HOPE
Sunday, October 9 // 6:15pm - 7:45pm
"A Walk for Hope" is a candlelit vigil to remember victims of domestic violence, and raise awareness in the Plymouth community.
Our guest speaker is Tanya Fure. She will share her sister's story, whose life was taken last February in the intersection of Rockford Road and NW Blvd, just down the street from Mount Olivet.
As part of the vigil, we will walk to the intersection to lay a wreath in memory of Trisha, and read aloud the names of all the domestic violence victims in our community.
Music and gathering
6:15pm: The vigil will start with a candlelit, interdenominational gathering in Mount Olivet's worship center. There will be prayer, song, and a blessing. All are welcome to attend.
6:30pm: Tanya Fure will share her sister's story, who was murdered at the intersection of Rockford and NW Blvd in February. Since February, Tanya has been working to raise awareness in Trisha's memory, in hopes of inspiring others to become survivors instead of victims.

The very first vigil was held at Saint Joseph the Worker in partnership with their Domestic Violence Awareness and Action team, and has continued yearly at Mount Olivet. Breaking the Silence holds events in the spring that in the past have shed awareness on teen dating violence, sex trafficking, and gender stereotypes.
