From the National Cathedral (3101 Wisconsin Avenue, NW):
“Washington National Cathedral will host an interfaith prayer vigil on Friday, March 23, for activists, students and pilgrims who are attending Saturday’s March For Our Lives to demand that their lives and safety become a priority for Congressional leaders in order to end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools.
Students and leaders from many faith traditions will lead this prayer service recognizing the breadth of trauma caused by gun violence, including community shootings, gang violence, school massacres, and suicide. In prayer and song, this gathering will honor those lost, acknowledge the pain survivors and victims’ families carry, and lift up the need for healing for communities impacted by gun violence and our country. Families, including that of Carmen Schentrup, a victim of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, will be a part of the program of prayer and reflection.
Vigil partners include the Episcopal Diocese of Washington; Mayor’s Office of Religious Affairs; The Nation’s Mosque, Masjid Muhammad; The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute; St. Mark’s Episcopal Capitol Hill; Episcopal Youth Ministries; The Church of the Epiphany; The TraRon Center; Council of Churches of Greater Washington; Progressive National Baptist Convention; Fellowship of Reconciliation; Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism; Virginia Theological Seminar; Faith in Public Life; Shiloh Baptist Church; Episcopal Bishops United Against Violence; The Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut; and, Jewish Teens March for Our Lives.
Tickets and registrations will not be required for entry; however, registration is encouraged to help the Cathedral prepare to welcome everyone. Doors open at 6 pm and seating is on a first come, first served basis.”
“The Endless Cycle” by Tim Tate. “For every man shown here, 1000 people died last year because of gun violence. For every gun shown here, a child dies every day. A hard lesson we have to learn from Orlando…and Parkland… and…..Only by joining together can we hope to curtail gun violence!”
From an email:

The National Cathedral really is fantastic. Thanks to Rachel for sending the latest example.
I’ve been getting pretty regular queries about what’s coming next to the Giant and Blue Mercury in Cathedral Heights – now we know – a Proper Topper pop up! From the owners:
“We are planning to open on Friday, Nov. 24th, in the space adjacent to Blue Mercury at the corner of Wisconsin and Newark. We’ll be there (10 – 8 M – F, 10 – 6 Sat, 12-5 Sun) through the end of December … and perhaps beyond.
My Dupont shop — where I’ve been since 1995, believe it or not! — continues to thrive, and we’re working on plans to expand that location in 2018.
In both locations, we’ll have an abundance of local goods, including our own DCProper collection of shirts and hats; in-store pick up for online purchases; curbside service for shoppers on the fly. Plus great play lists heavy on local music, and the friendliest staff around.Let Amazon try to match that : )”
