We Must Not Only pray, but Act

Dear Friends,

As followers of Jesus Christ and St. Francis and St. Clare, we know that violence is never the answer.  

We are horrified by the shooting of five police officers in Dallas, and the fact that someone took advantage of a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest to cause chaos and violence.

We are horrified by the shootings of Alton Sterling‬ and ‪‎Philando Castile‬ by police in Baton Rouge, LA and just outside St. Paul Minnesota.
