December 2018 marked the 12th Anniversary of Foxborough Universalist Church, Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Social Action Committee's First Thursdays Peace Vigils.

First Thursdays Peace Vigils @UUFoxborough

A Brief History Of UUFoxborough's First Thrsdays Peace Vigils

In April, 2003, the Foxborough Universalist Church, UUA lit the Peace Candle that sits in the front window of the church and serves as a symbol of the congregation's continued prayers for peace, especially in Iraq. In the Fall of 2006, the church's Social Action Committee began the First Thursdays Peace Vigils and the community of vigilers have stood in front of the church with peace candles and signs once a month since then. The plan was to continue until the war in Iraq was over, but it has continued to this day because troops are still deployed in the region and peace has not yet been achieved.



December 2017 marked the eleventh anniversary of the First Thursdays Peace Vigils and the community of vigilers is still going strong. The group has fluctuated in numbers over the years, but it's members are always appreciative of newcomers, pedestrians interested in the vigil, and the numerous honks and waves of support they receive from people traveling by the common every first Thursday of the month from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

If you're interested in finding out more about this endeavor or the community of vigilers, please contact LeeAnn via office@uufoxborough.org or firstthursdayspeacevigils@uufoxborough.org or stop by sometime between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on a First Thursday. Area residents are welcome and encouraged to participate!
