Who: Reading People for Peace

What: Vigils second Saturday of every month on the Reading Town Common from 11 a.m. to noon.


The Reading People for Peace sponsors monthly peace vigils on the Town Common in Reading, MA. All vigils are from 11 a.m. to noon on the second Saturday of each month. We are a non-partisan group that believes people must actively seek peace in order to have peace. Our members represent all major faith communities.

We are rather low key, doing just the one vigil each month. On the other hand, we've been faithful about that for six plus years, never having missed a day, despite cold, rain, snow, etc. We're sort of like the letter carriers of olden days. We generally get between four and ten people on a given day (plus one very faithful golden retriever).
