A vigil for immigrant justice will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at St. John's Episcopal Church, 35 Park St.

The interfaith prayer service is part of a Western Massachusetts Day of Prayer for Lucio Perez, who has been in sanctuary in Amherst for 17 months.

St. John's will unite with diverse congregations in praying for Perez's release, for the release of Irida Kakhtiranova, in sanctuary in Northampton for 10 months, and all individuals and families facing deportation, separation, and unjust treatment in the current immigration system.
