Photos from the Town of Wolfville Vigil with Nova Scotia:
Detailed Schedule and Instructions:
On Friday, April 24th, let’s come together as a town, community and province, in solidarity with the 22 individuals that we lost this week and their loved ones ♥
The Town of Wolfville, Port Williams Baptist and Wolfville Area Inter-Church Council invite residents to take part in our community-wide Vigil beginning Friday evening at 6:45 pm.
At the chime of the church bells, you can make your way into your driveways, onto your doorsteps, or to your windows. We invite you to create homemade red paper hearts to hold while we grieve, mourn and support one another during these challenging times.
Amazing local bagpipers will play tunes such as Amazing Grace from their doorsteps for all to hear from 6:50pm – 7pm. If you cannot hear the bagpipes, there will be a recording of a local bagpiper for you to watch both on the Town of Wolfville’s Facebook page and Instagram page.
At 7pm we will join in on the Province-wide moment of silence. See Nova Scotia Vigil – From Home Event Page for more information.
Come 7:02pm we will once again hear the church bells, which will serve as an invitation for each of us to place any homemade hearts that we have made up in our windows. May the hearts be a reminder of empathy and kindness throughout our community.
We also invite people to participate in WAICC’s video-recorded/written candle-lighting vigil (read the Vigil Liturgy and view the video on that page or view the video below) and/or in the virtual vigil happening at 7 pm via Colchester – Supporting Our Communities.
People can also post photos of their hearts or other displays of support on Town of Wolfville’s Facebook page or email them to and they will upload them for you..
Do you have a neighbour or friend who does not use or have access to social media? Feel free to give them a call and to help spread the word to bring our community together tomorrow evening.
Thank you, everyone.
