Statement on the violence at the
Holocaust Museum in Washington

 

           Bishop Matthew H. Clark and the People of the Diocese of Rochester express our deepest sadness at the tragic violence that occurred yesterday at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. We ask God to assuage the pain of loss of Stephen T. Johns' family. We recommit ourselves to work for and pray unceasingly for an end to anti-Semitism and all forms of hatred and bigotry, evils that wound and diminish humankind and corrupt God's plan for our world.
