The 69th Precinct Clergy Council held a Prayer Vigil on Monday night at the corner of Rockaway Parkway and Seaview Avenue. The vigils are held on a monthly basis, at busy areas where crime is high. Due to the cold winter months, this is the first vigil the Clergy Council has hosted since November 2021, but there was no shortage of powerful prayers for the Canarsie community.
After songs of praise and an opening prayer by Clergy Council President Rev. Cecil Moonsam, members of the clergy prayed for specific needs, including President Biden and Vice President Harris, blessings for our Nation and a call for an end to the terrible war in Ukraine, that no more lives would be lost.
