'Dying of Hope' prayer vigils have been held in different cities to remember migrants who died trying to reach Europe

The Community of Sant'Egidio gathered together with migrant communities in many places on the occasion of World Refugee Day.  Ecumenical prayer vigils "Dying of Hope" were held to remember the many, far too many, who died in perilous journeys in search of a better life and who unfortunately continue to lose their lives as they try to reach Europe.
