Advertiser Staff

The city is helping to coordinate an interfaith memorial service to be held tomorrow evening at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

Mayor Jeremy Harris said the 6:30 p.m. service at Punchbowl was suggested by the Rev. Dan Chun, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Honolulu. Harris said members of Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim and Hawaiian organizations have been invited to participate.

"This will be a candlelight memorial service of hope, healing and prayers for our country," Harris said last night.

The city will provide free shuttle bus service from the Neal Blaisdell Center. Parking at Blaisdell will be free and the shuttles will leave beginning at 5 p.m. from the Ward Avenue side.
