Please join us as we continue to pray for victims and survivors of the recent mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH. We also remember loved ones, first responders, medical professionals and others working to save lives and heal a traumatized community. May God grant you all peace, strength and comfort.
As Franciscan Sisters, God calls us to be instruments of Peace and act in response to the increasing frequency of high profile incidents of gun violence, as well as the many other incidents that don’t make the news, including domestic violence and suicide. As we continue to pray for victims and survivors, we stand with other Catholic Sisters to urge our elected leaders to work together, take a comprehensive look at the causes of gun violence, and take effective action to end gun violence.
