Statement from Faith Leaders in the City of Bangor following the attack in Manchester

In response to the awful terrorist attack in Manchester yesterday, three of the Faith Leaders in Bangor have today (23.5.2017) come together to offer their thoughts and prayers to all those who have been affected by last night’s terrorist attack in Manchester.

Gerald Williams (Baha’i and North Wales Police Chaplain), the Very Reverend Kathy Jones (Dean of Bangor) and Mirazam Khan (Imam of Bangor Islamic Centre) have issued a joint statement.

They say, ‘Our hearts go out to the families who have lost the life of a loved one, as well as those who have been injured.

We hope that the anger and outrage resulting from this attack on innocent people may eventually lead to greater efforts to stamp out violence in our country and in our world.’
