Letter From Our Bishop


Dear friends,

Along with you, I have watched and read over the last few weeks the heartbreaking and deeply disturbing stories, both here in our country and across the world, of the horrifying affect today's world has had on the safety and health of so many children. From the Middle East to the U.S. border, children lives seem to be ready pawns used in political arguments, economic wars and military conflicts.
