Statement in response to mass shootings carried out in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH

The tragic killings of so many innocents in El Paso and Dayton this past weekend tear at the heart of us all who, as people of faith, believe in the sanctity of all human life. Our prayers are with the injured and their families and with the families and friends who have lost loved ones. It is impossible for most of us to comprehend the depth of their sorrow. May Our Lady, who sorrowed at the death of her Son, console and encourage them.

We pray for the repose of the souls of those whose God-gifted lives have been taken from them through these evil actions. May they rest in peace.
