Prayer Vigil for Manchester Victims
24 May 2017
The service on Sunday (28th) at 3.30pm will be led by the Bishop of Wakefield, the Rt Revd Tony Robinson who said: “The events in Manchester on Monday evening are difficult for us to understand. It has affected us all in different ways especially as the stories have unfolded of loved ones lost and people’s lives and actions at that time. “I invite people to come together on Sunday to join in prayer for the victims and the injured and all those affected by this terrible act of barbarity.”
Civic and religious leaders have been invited and the Cathedral is throwing open its doors to anyone to come along to show solidarity with the people of Manchester at this time.
The Canon Precentor, the Revd Leah Vasey Saunders said: “We just want to create the space for people to express shock and grief together and, in some small way express their solidarity with the people of Manchester and all those families affected by this. “Let’s commit to being a people united by hope and not divided by fear,” she added.
