CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Area Interfaith Council is hosting a community-wide Interfaith Memorial Service on Friday, Feb. 8, for the 86 people who lost their lives in the Camp Fire.   

The hour and a half service will begin at 4 p.m. in the Paradise Performing Arts Center located at 777 Nunneley Road, Paradise. This is the first event to be held at the Center since the fire.

The Memorial will include multi-faith traditions with a goal of promoting healing and hope for the people of Butte County. Each life will be celebrated and remembered during this time of prayer, poems, music and moments of silence and reflection.

Representatives from 20 different faiths will take part, along with musicians that include Grammy Award Winning Artist Red Grammer, the Celebration Gospel Choir, Jason and Lindsay Beltz, Doin' It Justice Community Chorus, and Pianist Thorsteinn Gunter. 

Action News Now Noon News Anchor Linda Watkins-Bennett will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies and Action News Now plans to broadcast the Memorial Service on NBC Channel 24.
