The Episcopal Bishops in Massachusetts join the nation in grief over yesterday’s shooting in Virginia as yet another manifestation of the constant, deadly gun violence which confronts us.
Our colleague bishops in Virginia and Washington have issued the following letter. We thank them for the clarity of their statement, commend it to our own people, and join our prayers to theirs.
The Rt. Rev. Alan M. Gates, Diocese of MA, Bp Diocesan
The Rt. Rev. Gayle E. Harris, Diocese of MA, Bp Suffragan
The Rt. Rev. Douglas J. Fisher, Diocese of Western MA, Bp Diocesan
