Trinity Episcopal Church in Swarthmore opened its doors to the community on Monday evening for a time of prayer and vigil for those killed and injured in Orlando last weekend. Ninety-three people from the town and college heard prayers and readings from the Christian Scriptures and the Quran. Musical offerings were made, including classical works and spirituals on piano and organ, and the Elegy for solo viola by Britten. During a period of silent reflection after the manner of Quakers, the names of those killed (as released at the time) were read. Following the silence, those in attendance lit candles at the front of the church as a symbol of hope for healing and peace. Voices were raised in song to end the time together.
