A vigil for peace and justice in the world is held at St. James Cathedral on March 17. The vigil, preceded by a choral Eucharist and refreshments in Snell Hall, was held in observance of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Justice. The Very Rev. Dr. Robert Willis gave the homily and led the vigil, helping people pray for war-torn parts of the world, including the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Myanmar, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, South Sudan and Haiti. Dean Willis is the former dean of Canterbury Cathedral and became known around the world for his Morning Prayer videos during the pandemic. The vigil was co-hosted by the Bishop’s Committee on Interfaith Ministry.
