NEWTOWN - Communities and organizations around southwestern Connecticut are honoring the lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School all this week. Saturday marks the one-year anniversary of the shooting.

St. Timothy's Reverend Matthew Calkins says a ceremony with speakers and prayers for the victims will be held Sunday night at the Fairfield Town Hall Green.

Gov. Dannel Malloy has asked houses of worship throughout the state to ring their bells 26 times and hold a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Rachel Reese, with the Fairfield-based website Volunteer Square, helps connect locals to volunteer opportunities. Reese says there are dozens of ways residents can honor the lives lost.
