We commit all who died into God’s eternal keeping. And we pray for healing for all the wounded; comfort for the families and friends; and the light of God’s love to overcome the darkness in our world.

Embedded directly below are photos that show people coming together on January 30 in vigils across our country to show our love for, and solidarity with, all Canadian Muslims; affirm our commitment to, and celebration of, multiculturalism; and demonstrate our dedication to walk in, and be agents of, the light of life.
