As you’re probably aware, the news from Sri Lanka (part of the continent of Asia) this past week has told of horrific loss of life. Terrorists chose Easter Sunday morning to inflict unspeakable pain and devastation upon the Sri Lankan people through a series of suicide bombings in churches and hotels, killing 290 people, according to a most recent updating of numbers.
The Winona Interfaith Council, which represents many different faith groups and denominations, as well as those who claim no denomination, stand in solidarity and support with the Sri Lankan people. Our common denominator is that we are all spiritual people who believe that violence is never an answer to any problem.
As a group, we invite the Winona community to join us on Sunday evening, April 28, 2019, at 7 p.m. at the gazebo on Winona State University for a short light and prayer ritual — everyone wishing to show support is welcome to join us at this event.
