Statement from Bishop Burbidge on the shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh

First slide

Yesterday’s tragic shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh resulted in a tragic loss of life and was a demonstration of unbelievable hate and bigotry. In unity with Bishop David A. Zubik of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, I ask all in the Diocese of Arlington to join me in prayer for the victims of the shooting, their families who are suffering, and the community. This attack is a reminder that houses of worship should be a haven from violence and fear. Such acts of violence have no place in a truly free society. May the souls of those who died, rest in peace.
