December 1st is World AIDS Day, and The AIDS Network is proud to continue our annual tradition of holding a vigil service in collaboration with Christ’s Church Cathedral to honour the people in our communities living with HIV/AIDS and to memorialize those we have lost.

We invite our friends, family and allies in the community to join us for our first in-person vigil service since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s service on Thursday, December 1, 2022 will start at 6:30 pm. Our guest speaker will be Kate Murzin from Realize who will speak on hope and resilience during uncertain times.  Music will be provided by the Women’s Drummers from Hamilton and Joe Calverley (Pianist).  The AIDS Network’s executive director (Tim McClemont) will also speak.

Food and refreshments will follow the service.
