In the wake of the deadly shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church, Bishop Guglielmone asks that all South Carolina Catholics pray a novena for the victims of the massacre, and for healing within the Emanuel AME Church community.
“Lord, we pray for those who have been devastated by recent tragedies. We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly. We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief and loss. Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayers for strength. Bless those who have survived and heal their memories of trauma and devastation. May they have the courage to face the days ahead. Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, and in comfort to the best of our abilities. Keep our hearts focused on the needs of all the community. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
Father Henry of St. Patrick Catholic Church, 134 St. Phillip Street, will be praying the Rosary nightly at St. Patrick Catholic Church. Beginning tonight through Saturday at 7 PM each evening. Everyone is welcome to attend.
