Bishop Murphy Statement on Shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Charleston

From Bishop William Murphy on June 19, 2015

It is with deep sadness that we learned of the news of the killing on June 17 of nine members of the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.  Together in solidarity with my fellow bishops, priests, consecrated women and men and the lay faithful of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, we offer the families now in mourning our prayers and heartfelt condolences. We condemn in the strongest possible terms all kinds of racial hatred and violence.

I also join my brother bishops across the country who as Archbishop Kurtz, of Louisville, Kentucky, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said today in his statement: “The Catholic community stands with all people who struggle for an end to racism and violence, in our families, in our places of worship, in our communities and in our world.”

During Masses this weekend, I ask our pastors to remember the deceased, their families and all those affected by this senseless violence.
