Laity and clergy are trained to serve as mentors to individuals and families affected by homicide. These "survivors" are also victims who struggle with the pain and anguish of violent death. EPRH mentors have made contact with hundreds of families in an attempt to stand with them and show them Christ's compassion during extremely painful times.
What is the Remembrance Service?
The Church Federation and several community partners, such as Legacy House, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department's Victim's Assistance Department, Project Safe Neighborhood and many local churches, work together to provide two (2) community services to remember homicide victims in our community. Family members and friends are invited to the services to stand to represent the memory of their loved one as his or her name is read These services are held at local churches that consent to using their facilities.
TWO REMEMBRANCE SERVICES
Light the Night for Life
At the beginning of each year the first service is held. Light the Night for Life is the community serve held to remember homicide victims from the past calendar year.
National Day for Remembrance of Murder Victims
The National Day for Remembrance of Murder Victims is the national day set aside to remember homicide victims killed between September 1 of the previous calendar year and August 31 of the current calendar year. The service is held each year on the actual national date, September 25.
