Message from Bishop Matano requesting prayers for end to violence:
Bishop Matano renews his request that prayers continue to be offered for an end to the violence now plaguing our country and our world. While continuing our prayers for the victims of the horrific violent tragedy in Orlando, and united in prayer with the families of all who mourn their loss, we also pray for the victims and families of the senseless violence in Istanbul, Bangladesh and Baghdad, and now most recently with the shootings claiming lives in Dallas, Louisiana and Minnesota.
Each day sadly brings a new cross of pain for humanity to bear. Throughout the world, the family of God is being torn apart, demanding us to acknowledge that all life is sacred and we are all God’s children.
