Each year, December 1st is designated as World AIDS Day, a day set aside for people to show support for those living with HIV, to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness, and to unite worldwide in the ongoing fight against HIV.
This year, Richmond Hill United Church is partnering with CAYR Community Connections, formerly AIDS Committee York Region, ACYR, to mark this day, and are hosting a candlelight vigil on the Yonge Street steps of the church. Participants are asked to wear a mask and to maintain physical distance.
Candles will be provided.
They will start to gather at 7:45 pm.
