Coptic Orthodox faithful will gather in Melbourne, Australia for a peace vigil, in honor of the individuals who lost their lives amid violence at protests in Egypt.

From the article:
The Coptic Orthodox Church is hosting a Vigil 4 Peace on November 4 in Federation Square to commemorate the young lives lost on October 9 in Egypt. Under the guidance and direction of His Grace Bishop Suriel, Head of the Diocese of Melbourne and Affiliated Regions, the Vigil 4 Peace will flood Federation Square in a sea of white symbolising hope for the future of Christians around the globe.

With parallel memorials in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin, the vigils will incorporate hymns, prayers and symbolic gestures to help Christians in the region show their solidarity for brethren abroad.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
