Bishop urges prayers for shooting victims

Bishop Salvatore R. Matano is asking for prayers for the victims of the Aug. 19 shootings in Rochester that killed three people and injured four others. The shootings occurred outside the Boys and Girls Club on Genesee Street.

"You are kindly asked to offer prayers for those who tragically lost their lives or were injured in the violence that erupted on August 19 in Rochester, as well as prayers for their families and the community," the bishop said in an Aug. 20 statement." May the Prince of Peace, the Christ of the Eucharist, bring peace and reverence for every person created in God’s image."
