Special Service for Sexual Assault Victims

A worship service for people affected by sexual assault was held at All Saints' Episcopal Church on Thursday, October 4.

The Service of Lament and Remembrance was a response to U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearings. The Sept. 27 hearings involved Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who says he sexually assaulted her.

The service offered “a shared space for those who have been particularly affected in a personal way by the events in Washington,” All Saints’ rector Dr. Simon Mainwaring said in a statement.
