Dear National Council members and Regional Ministers,
In light of the recent killings in Nova Scotia, I would ask you to please remember in prayer all who have been affected by this tragedy - those who have died, their surviving loved ones, neighbours and friends, the police and first responders, as well as the entire Nova Scotian community.
In the words of Eileen Izzard, local fraternity minister of St. Bonaventure Fraternity in Halifax, NS, "This heart breaking violence strikes pain deep in all our hearts. While being unified in Christ through prayer, may He bring courage, healing and hope to all affected in any way."
Please circulate this message to all of your local fraternities. Thank you.
Doug Clorey, ofs
