The community is invited to a non-stop recital of Guru Granth Sahib ji, the Sikh faith’s holy book, from 10:30 a.m. Friday until 2 p.m. Sunday.

The reading, for victims of the Aug. 5 fatal shooting of six Sikhs at a Wisconsin temple, will be held at Gurdwara Sahib Stockton, 1930 S. Grant St. People from all faiths are welcome to attend.

“It is an opportunity to share that we are a peaceful and loving religion who welcomes and respects people from all faiths and backgrounds,” according to an email from the Stockton gurdwara.
