Statement on Mass Shooting in Las Vegas

Our hearts break for the victims of the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, last night. We hold all who are touched by this brutal act in prayer. We commend to you the message from Bishops United Against Gun Violence, of which our bishops are a part, and invite you to join in ringing your church bells tomorrow at noon. We also commend the video message of our Presiding Bishop, the Most Rev. Michael J. Curry. Please continue to pray and to act on behalf of all who suffer in the ongoing epidemic of gun violence in our nation.
