Gun Violence

Grace Cathedral is deeply concerned about the epidemic of gun violence in the United States.


We have turned this concern into action by partnering with the Brady Campaign and Moms Demand Action, leadership in the Stop Family Fire campaign and participation in the March for Our Lives movement.

49 Farolitos: Art Installation
Saturday, June 9 through Sunday, June 24

This installation by James Nocito pays tribute to the people murdered in the Orlando nightclub shooting on June 12, 2016. Nocito’s simple and dignified portraits are a moving reminder of this tragic loss and also, a reminder that love is stronger than hate.

Gun Buyback at Bayview Mission
Saturday, August 4 at 9 am – 2 pm

Help end gun violence and be the solution  we are buying guns for $100, assault weapons for $200 and will pay in cash, no questions asked. Afterward, join us for a fun community event complete with bouncy castle, water games, food and music.

Victims of Gun Violence Altar
The gun violence altar commemorates local people killed by guns and provides both a space for prayer and material to help people take action. You can light a candle, pray and write your own prayer for the victims or for our country.
