Barbara LaCombe, Gerry Osacho and Lisa Stiller attend Beaverton peace vigil.
Catholic peacemakers attend the Washington County Peace vigil each Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at 5th and Hall in Beaverton. Recently, activists held a special vigil calling for an end to violence in the Middle East, especially strife between Israelis and Palestinians.
"We are not taking sides," said one attendee, Lisa Stiller. "We are calling on both Israelis and Palestinians to work together for a just and lasting peace for both people. We are taking the sides of both people in their quest for peace."
