Six months after massacre, Pulse to reopen for ‘Remembering Our Angels’ memorial

An Orlando nightclub is set to host a memorial marking six months since the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Pulse announced the “Remembering Our Angels” event Thursday on social media.

Forty-nine people were killed and dozens more injured June 12 after gunman Omar Mateen opened fire inside the nightclub. The club will open at 1:45 a.m. Monday for candle lighting, with a moment of silence scheduled for 2:02 a.m., the time the attack began.

Pulse will reopen at 5:30 p.m. Monday for a memorial ceremony. Local pastors are scheduled to speak, and the Orlando Gay Chorus is set to perform.

Pulse nightclub owner Barbara Poma recently declined an offer from the city of Orlando to buy the building. She said she plans to make the space a “sanctuary of hope.”
