Queen’s and Kingston community members are invited to attend a special vigil on Monday evening to remember the victims of the deadly attack on a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Organized by the Kingston Interfaith Community, the vigil is being hosted at Confederation Basin in downtown Kingston starting at 5:30 pm.
“We, members and leaders of diverse religious faiths and spiritual practices, are heartbroken and horrified by the news from Christchurch, New Zealand that at least 49 people are dead and dozens more injured while participating in Friday prayers at two mosques,” organizers say in the event announcement. “Keenly aware of and grateful for Muslim friends and neighbours here in Kingston, we join them in holding in our hearts and prayers the individuals and families directly affected by this shooting, Muslim communities in Christchurch, across New Zealand, in Canada and around the world."
