REDDING, Calif - Community members in Redding will be holding a vigil to honor the 50 people that died in last week’s deadly mosque attack in New Zealand.

The Shasta County Interfaith Forum said it is organizing this event not only to honor the victims and their families but to show support to all Muslim community members.

The vigil, which begins at 7 p.m. at the Pilgrim Congregational United Church of Christ, will include brief comments and prayers from various faiths including the Islamic Center of Redding.

The vigil will be free and is open to the public.

Donations will be collected and sent to New Zealand to help in this difficult time.
