Important message from the Bishops of the Diocese of Virginia

Dear Franciscans, Today, the Bishops of the Diocese of Virginia released a letter addressing two recent incidents which are disturbing. One of the incidents included racial epithets pointed at minority athletes on the campus of the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee communicated through acts of Vandalism, and the other was the murder of eight people, six of whom were Asian Women. The bishops are asking for our prayers and our renewed efforts to stand against violence and racism. I ask you to read their statement and add your prayers to those of the diocese on behalf of the victims, their families, and our society.  -Rev. David Lucey
