From Bishop William Murphy on June 19, 2015

It is with deep sadness that we learned of the news of the killing on June 17 of nine members of the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.  Together in solidarity with my fellow bishops, priests, consecrated women and men and the lay faithful of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, we offer the families now in mourning our prayers and heartfelt condolences. We condemn in the strongest possible terms all kinds of racial hatred and violence.

I also join my brother bishops across the country who as Archbishop Kurtz, of Louisville, Kentucky, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said today in his statement: “The Catholic community stands with all people who struggle for an end to racism and violence, in our families, in our places of worship, in our communities and in our world.”

During Masses this weekend, I ask our pastors to remember the deceased, their families and all those affected by this senseless violence.

A Unified Voice for All New York State Catholics

The New York State Catholic Conference represents the Bishops of the state in working with government to shape laws and policies that pursue social justice, respect for life and the common good. We provide a unified voice for the eight dioceses of the state to speak on such issues as education, marriage, health care, poverty, abortion, euthanasia, social services, criminal justice and the environment. We apply the principles of Catholic social teaching to critical issues of the day and encourage citizen involvement in the legislative process.
