Did you know that every 30 minutes a child or teen dies or is injured from a gun? Take a look at our updated Rachel's Day resource that offers information on how you can work within your community and congregation to combat gun violence.

Rachel’s Day is observed by Women of the ELCA annually on the first Sunday in May, though it can be observed any time of the year. It is a time set aside to mourn the loss of our children and to renounce the forces of violence and fear. The 2015 Rachel's Day resource includes a litany for use in a special Rachel's Day service.
