CIC & MIA — “Victims of Sri Lanka attack mourned in 2 Indianapolis services”

WTHR April 25, 2019

People of all faiths are standing in solidarity with the victims of the Sri Lanka attacks.

More than a dozen people from eight religions gathered at Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral on the city’s north side. They prayed for those who lost their lives in the Easter Sunday bombings.

“All of them are in mourning today with questions and no answers about the terrible massacre of innocence,” said Razi Nalim, who is from Sri Lanka.

There was also another vigil Thursday evening at Butler University. People gathered on campus around the Star Fountain to pray for the victims.
