Skiatook Church Hosts Prayer Vigil In Honor Of Murder Victims
Skiatook mourners gather at local church to grieve and pray for the two victims in a murder earlier this week.
Jim Stratton, pastor at Riveted Church, hosted a prayer vigil at the church for the friends and family of 16-year-old Larisa Fraley and her grandmother Esther Driskell. A youth minister was approached by a young member of the church to see if a vigil could be hosted there.
"We want our building to be used for all kinds of community events," Stratton said. "Obviously we would rather not have it used as a prayer vigil because of the circumstances that occasioned it."
High school students gathered at the church to pray for the victims and their families. Gatherers had the opportunity to write down prayers and attach them to balloons.
The family of the murder victims are asking that in lieu of flowers, monetary donations can be made to a memorial fund set up at RCB bank. Esther Driskell & Larisa Fraley, account number - 110708974
