Prayer vigil for Joseph Burke-Monerville to be held in Clapton on Saturday


Shot and killed in Clapton

A Prayer vigil in memory of  Joseph Burke-Monerville who was shot last weekend, has been organised by St-John-at-Hackney for Saturday,  at 4:30pm on the corner of  Hindrey and Clarence Road in Clapton. The vigil has been arranged with the approval of  Josephs parents.

Joseph, 19, a Metropolitan University student, was sitting in a parked car with his twin brother and 22 year old brother on Hindrey Road at about 8:20pm Saturday 17,  when they were approached by two men who fired shots at them. Joseph was pronounced dead a 11:10 pm at a hospital, his 22 year old brother who drove them away from the scene, was shot in the shoulder and is in serious but stable condition. His twin brother Jonathan was unharmed.

The rector of  St-Johns-at-Hackney, Fr Rob Wickham said: “It would be lovely for as many people from Hackney to attend, as we offer pastoral support to our parish in a time of such pain.”

After hitching her wagon in California, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana for 18 years, with a brief spell in Mexico, the prodigal daughter returned to London, happy to put an unconventional and risqué past behind her. It sometimes feels like she’s still at war with herself. This often leads her into a whole lot of trouble, although it’s fair to blame it on some of her best qualities: intelligence, original thinking, willingness to take risks, skepticism, rebelliousness, independence, and creativity. But you know what, much of the trouble she gets into is because she can’t help pointing out that the emperor is naked. Remi still lives by her own rules, nobody else’s. She is owned by her two dogs Deffer(a Jack Russell ) Darcy (a Jack Russell/Pomeranian mix now deceased but can’t remove their names) and two Black cats she adopted December 2021, Desmond and Tutu. She is proprietor of London’s finest and long established pet sitting service. The big smoke is home for the moment, but she desperately yearns wide open spaces, where she hopes to call home in the near future.
