KINGSTON – Victims of domestic violence will be remembered tonight at Christ the King Church at 180 Old North Road, Kingston at 7 p.m. as the church holds a silent witness vigil to raise public awareness of domestic violence.
“It's not a vigil. It's not a silent vigil at all. It's more of a presentation. It is called silent because the witnesses are silent obviously,” Nancy Beede, coordinator of the silent vigil at the church said.
The church held its first vigil in 2008 when the Domestic Violence Resource Center of South County in Wakefield asked for their assistance. Eighty people attended the vigil in 2008, including the families of two victims. The church has been actively involved in working with the resource center, including refurbishing rooms at the safe house.
