A Good Friday Pilgrimage for Peace, organized by the Episcopal Peace Fellowship and joined by other local churches, synagogues, mosques and activist groups, will be held on Good Friday, April 18. Participants will assemble at Heifer International headquarters at 1:00 p.m. and walk past the Clinton Library to the River Market and across the pedestrian bridge to the Beacon of Peace & Hope, located in front of the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum, 110 Riverfront Drive in North Little Rock. Or, individuals can join the Pilgrimage at the Beacon at 2:00 p.m.: ample parking space is available. A Remembrance Service will be held at that time consisting of prayers, brief reflections from scripture and literature, and a reading of the names of all homicide victims in Pulaski County during the past year.
The purpose of the Pilgrimage, according to organizers, is “to mourn the violence committed in our community and the world, and to walk together as active peacemakers.” All are invited to participate.
