The mass shootings in Texas and Ohio last week have once again disrupted the course of our daily lives. These heinous acts are evil in their purest form. The lives of innocent people have been taken by these malicious acts and families are once again left in mourning.
I kindly ask all of the faithful across the Western Diocese to pray for the departed souls of the victims as well as for their beloved ones who are in deep pain. In troublesome times, we are all deprived of peace.
May the Good Lord bless us all and guide us to always abide in His laws.
Archbishop Hovnan Derderian
