A statement from Bishop Glen John Provost:
The news of Saturday’s attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is shocking and distressing. What was intended to be a celebration of faith and new life devolved into terror and violence. We again denounce all forms of racial prejudice and violence. The menace of Anti-Semitism must be rooted out in all of its forms.
We stand in solidarity with our Jewish brothers and sisters as we commend to Our Heavenly Father the lives of the eleven people killed in the attack. We pray, too, for the first responders and all those who rendered aid. May God be with them and their families in their sorrow.
