A Vigil of Lament and Hope – St German’s Cathedral

Tonight (19 June 2016) the Isle of Man LGBT community came together as one. Together we stood shoulder to shoulder and showed solidarity in mourning the senseless loss of life in Orlando on 12th June at the Pulse nightclub.

Thank you to St German’s Cathedral, Peel especially Kathryn Thubron who did a wonderful job, thanks also to the Chief Minister, Members of Tynwald and the Isle of Man community for attending. It was a true time of reflection and the turn out was amazing.

The condolence book will remain in the Cathedral until 26th June if anyone would like to send a message to the community in Orlando.

Here is a selection of photographs taken before tonight’s service.
