A Prayerful Response


Too much bloodshed. Too much violence. The headlines can become overwhelming, even for people with deep faith.

In response to recent violent events in our country, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops made this statement:

“There have been too many school shootings, too much killing of the innocent. Our Catholic faith calls us to pray for those who have died and to bind the wounds of others, and we join our prayers along with the community in Uvalde... As we do so, each of us also needs to search our souls for ways that we can do more to understand this epidemic of evil and violence and implore our elected officials to help us take action.”

We invite our members to visit our chapel, light a candle, and say a prayer anytime our building is open.

For now, we pray. With God's guidance, we will act.
