Interfaith vigil commemorates victims of Paris attacks

Paris vigil

Praying for Paris

On the evening of Sunday 16th November, around 100 people braved the cold to attend an interfaith candlelit vigil in memory of those who lost their lives in the horrific attacks in Paris last Friday.

The event, organised by Citizens UK, took place on the riverbanks next to City Hall and was attended by representatives of Jewish, Muslim and Christian faith groups. Participants stood in solidarity with Parisians, lighting a candle to burn through the darkness.

Barbara Kentish, who represented Justice and Peace with Fr Joe Ryan, said: “We all felt that there was a strong sense of solidarity with our sister capital city. This attack was also an attack on the multicultural values of London.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Paris.
