“Love Thy Neighbor” — a commandment in every major religion — is the theme of a vigil in support of refugees, migrants and pilgrims planned for Sunday, January 6 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Shrine of the Most Holy Redeemer on the Las Vegas Strip.
Organized by Southern Nevada Faith Community Coalition in response to the treatment of refugees and migrants at our borders and within our country, the vigil will be a public witness in prayerful support of our neighbors.

Robert Stoeckig, Vicar General of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Las Vegas; Nationally known Dreamer Astrid Silva; Culinary Leader Geoconda Arguello-Kline; Rabbi Malcolm Cohen of Temple Sinai; Ms. Fahima Khalaf from the Muslim community; and Pastor Ralph Williamson of the First AME Church of Las Vegas.
