Western New Yorkers will gather tonight to remember the lives lost at the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando.

The St. Matthias Episcopal Church in East Aurora is offering a 'Service of Remembrance, Comfort and Hope' at 7 p.m. 

The service will feature prayer and song for the victims and their families.

"In this time of profound sadness, we invite the community to come together to remember those who died, pray for those who are wounded, and weep with those who mourn," the Rev. Ann M. Tillman Rector of the parish said.

The church is located at 374 Main Street in East Aurora.
