Pittsburgh United Methodists will hold an ecumenical vigil Sunday for justice in the Michael Rosfeld trial, which is underway in the Allegheny County Courthouse.

The vigil, described as an ecumenical gathering of prayer, singing and sharing, will be held at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at Warren United Methodist Church, 2604 Centre Ave., Pittsburgh.

The vigil will include prayers for justice in Rosfeld’s trial and for community healing after the 2018 shooting of Antwon Rose II. It will conclude with candle-lighting on the steps of the church. The public is welcome.

Rosfeld is accused of shooting Rose, 17, three times as he ran from a June 19 traffic stop in East Pittsburgh.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
