The Cathedral Church of Saint Luke in downtown Orlando will host a memorial from 6 to 7 p.m. Sunday, June 19, that will include a procession to Lake Eola for a candlelight vigil, expected to start at 7:30 p.m. The cathedral will provide candles to participants as they leave the church, which holds 400 to 600 people.
