ROCKLAND — In response to the war in Ukraine, members of the First Universalist Church are organizing a weekly Gathering For Peace at the church on Thursdays from 5-6 p.m.

People of all faiths or of none are welcome.

We will gather for an hour, beginning with meditation and prayer followed by sharing and reflection. There will be information on actions people can take to help alleviate the suffering of those affected by war.

Masks are optional inside the church except when singing; vaccination strongly recommended.

The First Universalist Church is located at 345 Broadway. For more information, contact the church at 594-8750, or email
