Like all Canadians, we are shocked at the tragic event in Quebec City on January 29, 2017.
We offer our condolences and prayers to families and friends of those injured at the Center Culturel Islamique de Quebec. We believe it is essential that people be able to assemble, worship and enjoy fellowship without fear of ridicule or violence.
Our College Community will participate with our colleagues on Memorial University Campus in a gathering to create a physical circle of support around St. John’s College Chapel where MUN’s Muslim community meets for prayer. This show of support is scheduled for Friday, February 03 at 1:00 p.m.
We invite and encourage students of Queen’s College, our Faculty members, friends of Queen’s and guests to join us on Parking Lot 19 at 12:30 p.m. on Friday for a walk to St. John’s College to participate in the physical circle of support.
