On Sunday, May 5, UMIO (United Mercer Interfaith Organization) is holding its 6th Annual Unity Gathering for the families of victims of homicide violence during the past year in the Trenton area. This prayer gathering is focused on remembering those individuals who have died. The Unity Gathering will be held in Mill Hill Park, 2-5pm. The families of the victims are invited, as well as members of the community impacted by their loss. UMIO is reaching out to the community in the hope of locating as many families as possible.
The interfaith ceremony will feature music, readings, commentary, and prayers. The moderator for this year’s memorial gathering is the Rev. Karen Hernandez-Granzen, Pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Trenton. Music will begin at 2pm, which will allow families an opportunity to interact with others and avail themselves of information on support services they might find helpful. Speakers will make up the formal portion of the program from 3-4pm, followed by more music and refreshments.
