"Six men were killed and 19 others wounded when a gunman opened fire on worshippers at the mosque as they prayed shortly before 8 p.m. January 29, 2017. Alexandre Bissonette, a university student, has been charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder in relation to the attack. The January 29 shooting was commemorated through different events January 26-29 , said Bruce Myers, bishop of the diocese of Quebec". "Quebec City Anglicans have also been helping support victims of the attack. In the immediate aftermath, the diocese, Myers says, contributed to a widows' and orphans' fund set up to support family members of the victims. More recently, Anglicans have lent their support to Aymen Derbali, a member of the mosque who was shot seven times while reportedly drawing the shooter's attention to himself in an attempt to save others". "Myers said the cathedral parish has designated its Christmas Eve offering to the fund -- according to Facebook post by cathedra; Dean Christian Schreiner, this totalled almost $900 -- and a fundraising concert is being organized in the cathedral". "The diocese has been reaching out to Quebec's Muslim community since the shooting in a variety of ways, Myers said, hosting this fall, for example, a gathering of Muslim and Anglican families in the cathedral, with similar events planned for the near future".
