The program to teach teenagers nonviolence and peacemaking had just started last summer when it was rocked by the slaying of a member's mother.

Police say that Elizabeth Cann was gunned down in her Norton home in August by her boyfriend, who also shot two of her daughters and left them critically wounded. Another daughter, Amanda, 17, was on vacation in Florida. She had joined Interfaith Youth Initiative that summer.
