‘Light the City’ Begins New Tradition

“Light the City — Georgetown,” a community celebration of unity and faith, was held the evening of Sept. 12, beginning with a Vigil Mass at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Afterwards, “human luminaries” with candles walked from the west side of Georgetown to a gathering at Epiphany Catholic Church on the east side of town, praying at or visiting churches along the way.

Participating churches included Christ Church, Dumbarton United Methodist Church, Epiphany Catholic Church, First Baptist, Georgetown Lutheran, Georgetown Presbyterian, Georgetown Visitation Monastery Chapel, Grace Episcopal, Holy Trinity, Jerusalem Baptist, National Community Church and St. John’s Episcopal.
