July 16 is the 75th anniversary of the detonation of the first nuclear weapon in human history and 2020 is also the 30th year for the Day of Prayer for Forgiveness and Protection on July 15-16. You are invited to participate remotely via Zoom (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/72313107071?pwd=T1E5MnhLYTdmWjZMSHdmT01QR3M1UT ) in this 24-hour event re-configured as a virtual vigil as an alternative to participating in person in New Mexico.
Below are the Zoom link and code information and a .pdf of the program of events for the 24 hours. is attached. Also attached is the Statement of Purpose for this Vigil at Trinity Site
When you enter the Zoom your video and sound will be muted and remain so. There will be no need to unmute either from your location for the duration. Joining the zoom, leaving it, and rejoining it uses the same link and code found above and below. We note that this is the first time this is being attempted and we anticipate there may be some technical glitches so we beg your patience. Happily, there is no reason an interrupted or frozen connection can stop you from praying wherever you are! Like at the desert site itself, it is not a marathon. Come and go from the Zoom meeting as you prefer. Zoom can be downloaded for laptops (PC and Mac) iPad, tablets, and smartphones. Joining a meeting as a participant is free. Click the link and follow the prompt to enter the password and you will be automatically admitted to the Zoom meeting. Make sure the sound on your device is turned up.
