Pocket Community Vigil at Madinah Masjid

Friday, February 3rd 2017 @ 7:45pm

Residents in the Danforth-Donlands area invite you to a candlelight walk this Friday night, encircling the mosque – the Madinah Masjid – to honour the victims of the horrific mass shooting in Quebec. Demonstrate your support for and solidarity with the mosque and its community. Stand together in our mutual call for peace and unity, and against intolerance and bigotry.

Please meet up at 7:45 pm in front of the mosque at 1015 Danforth Avenue for a prayer and welcoming remarks. Bring your candles for a walk around the block to encircle the mosque with an outpouring of community support.

All welcome!

Questions – contact Susan at speaking@web.ca or Rob at kaufmannard@gmail.com

#EastEndLove #LoveisbetterthanAnger

The PCA took a condolence note to the Mosque on Monday afternoon to convey the community’s support. Please see a copy of the note here.
