A vigil will be held in Dauphin this week to remember the lives of 15 people who died in a tragic collision near Carberry late last week.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Auditorium will open its doors for a community memorial service Thursday evening, exactly one week after the horrific crash claimed fifteen lives and seriously injured ten others.

"This vigil will provide an opportunity to be together to grieve for those who have passed, to pray for those who are struggling and to support each other," said Kathy Bellemare, councillor for the City of Dauphin.

RCMP have planned a news conference at 1 p.m. on Thursday to announce the names of those whose lives were lost in the crash. Premier Heather Stefanson will be in attendance, as well as first responders who were on the scene.

The vigil will take place at 7 p.m. tomorrow at the Ukrainian Orthodox Auditorium. No media will be allowed to attend the event.

Those who are unable to attend the vigil can watch it here.  

The Service is being organized by the Dauphin & District Ministerial Association.
