Usccb Logo

In response to shootings over the weekend, the U.S. bishops issued a statement calling for a renewed dialogue on racism and gun violence as well as offering prayers for those impacted by the events in Buffalo, NY and Laguna Woods, CA.  Mass shootings and violent acts motivated by racial animus continue to plague the U.S. The bishops issued a statement on racism in 2018 entitled Open Wide Our Hearts, calling on Catholics to “repair the breach caused by racism, which damages the human family.”  A link to the document can be found in the bishops’ statement here
